The Executive Committee of the Women's Center has decided to hold another aca-
demic conlerence next year; The 1974 conference laid the foundation for the
exploration of the impact of the broad social movement of feminism on the

Foundation has renewed its grant which will make possible Bernard's second
academic conference.
