January 20, 1993
Dear Ms. Smeal:

This past July, the President of Barnard College, Ellen
Futter, wrote inviting you to participate in a conference
entitled Women as change-Makers: Building and Using Political
Power, to take place on Saturday, April 24, 1993. The event is
in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the Barnard
Center for Research on Women, and in honor of this important
anniversary for Barnard and its commitment to women's
advancement, we are planning a conference that should have
national importance for women.

Since the original letter was not received or has been
misplaced, I am attaching a copy; it explains the concept of
the conference, and your possible participation in it.

A number of prominent women have already responded positively.
Among them are Anna Quindlen, Pulitzer Prize—winning New York
Times columnist, who will deliver the closing remarks of the
day. Others planning to attend include Faye Wattleton; Marie
Wilson, Director of the Ms. Foundation; Representative Marge
Roukema; the Honorable Carry Saxon Perry, Mayor of Hartford,
Connecticut; Dr. Margaret Hamburg, Commissioner of the New
York City Health Department; Julia Scott of the National
Black Women's Health Project; Ruth Messinger, Manhattan
Borough President; Prof. Ruth Mandel of the Center for
American Women and Politics, Rutgers University; Alexis Gelber
of Newsweek magazine; Dr. Kathleen Francovic of CBS News;
Prof. Catharine R. Stimpson; and the Honorable Betty Ellerin.

I will give your office a call in the near future to see if I
may answer any questions, and to get your response. Or, I may
be reached at (212) 854-2067.
