Report on the conclusions of the Task Force on Barnard and the Educated Woman, 1971, page 3
of vital concern to a wide cross-section of our graduates. We offered a varied and serious two-day program. Author-alumna Elizabeth Janeway discussed her new book, "Man's World, Woman's Place"; Professor of Education Patricia Graham spoke on women in academe; a report was given on the vocational achievements and concerns of the Class of 1965; Congressman Jonathan Bingham described legislative changes of concern to women; a panel of alumnae discussed the psychological stresses on women in our society; and career workshops were offered in the arts, business and science. Next fall our Alumnae Council too will focus on how the new feminism is changing education at Barnard. This year we have also been engaged in an in-depth study of how Barnard could best respond to these new challenges. A Task Force on Barnard and the Educated Woman, with trustees, faculty, alumnae, students and administrators represented, has been exploring such basic questions as the extent of our responsibilities to women beyond our own students and alumnae, and what we can or ought to do to show our students what it means to be an educated woman in contemporary America.
