REPORT ON PROGRESS IN 1965 ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN.
Citizens Advisory Council on the Status of Women, Washington, DC.; Interdepartmental Committee on the Status of Women, Washington, DC.
THE NATION'S CONCERN FOR THE STATUS OF WOMEN WAS RAPIDLY TRANSLATED INTO ACTION DURING 1965. PROGRESS WAS REPORTED IN THE AREAS OF EDUCATION, HOME AND COMMUNITY, EMPLOYMENT, LABOR STANDARDS, SECURITY OF BASIC INCOME, LEGAL STATUS OF WOMEN, AND THE POLITICAL AND SOCIAL ACTION OF WOMEN. THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE STATE COMMISSIONS ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN IN 45 STATES ARE BRIEFLY SUMMARIZED. UNPRECEDENTED PROGRESS WAS MADE IN THE 89TH CONGRESS WITH THE ENACTMENT OF LEGISLATION TOUCHING ON EVERY RECOMMENDATION IN THE AREA OF EDUCATION MADE BY THE PRESIDENT'S COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN. SIGNIFICANT ADVANCES WERE MADE IN HEALTH SERVICES, COMMUNITY SERVICES, CHILD CARE SERVICES, HOMEMAKER SERVICES, HOUSEHOLD EMPLOYMENT, AND MOBILIZATION OF VOLUNTEERS. ADVANCES IN EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY FOR WOMEN IN PRIVATE ENTERPRISE EQUALLED THOSE IN THE FEDERAL SPHERE IN 1964. THREE STATES -- DELAWARE, INDIANA, AND MARYLAND -- ENACTED MINIMUM WAGE LAWS FOR THE FIRST TIME. WOMEN IN THE STATE LEGISLATURES INCREASED FROM 328 IN 1961 TO 370 IN 1965.
