Barnard should make videotapes of actual classroom sessions available at cost through the Women's Center and local alumnae clubs. 3) Professor John Sanders of the Geology Department has pointed out the acute intellectual, psychological, and political disadvantages women have in starting up their careers in science again. The Barnard science departments might serve as administrative and logistical bases for bringing women back into the competitive web of research through a program of fellowships. Participants would devote themselves to reading, study, arid discussions. They might also operate part~time in teaching labs for undergraduates, working with lab assistants.
