The Barnard women's Center recently sent out a questionnaire to people in-
 volved in women's studies requesting their opinions on a proposed interdisciplinary 
 bibliography of the year's work in women's studies. As the responses soundly 
 supported our project, we would now like to proceed with collecting information 
 both from organizations and from individuals. Our purpose is to incorporate the 
 year's academic studies on women, either completed or in progress, along with 
 information on innovative action projects such as women's health collectives, 
 community day care, legal aid, women's publications, feminist theater, film 
 projects, and so forth. In this way we hope to spark a [livelier] interchange between 
 theory and practice.
 What we need from you in the space provided below is a description of the 
 research or project in which you are involved. Or if you know of an individual or 
 group whose work should be included, please either let us know about it or else 
 pass this request for information on to them. Finally from those associated with 
 women's publications, we would welcome any publicity for our project that your 
 publication can provide.
 Thank you in advance for your participation.
