A Conference Sponsored by the Barnard College Women's Center


Funded by the Helena Rubinstein Foundation

Saturday, April 24, 1982

Recognizing that sexuality has been a topic of debate within the feminist community, the conference will address women's sexual autonomy, choice and pleasure, acknowledging that sexuality is simultaneously a domain of re- striction, repression and danger as well as exploration, pleasure and agency. Giving consideration to the politi- cal, social, historical and psychological dimensions, we will look at 19th and 20th century feminist attitudes, women's right to sexual pleasure apart from reproduction and the implications of New Right attacks on feminism.
