PROGRESS AND PROSPECTS, THE REPORT OF THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE OF GOVERNORS' COMMISSIONS ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN (2D, WASHINGTON, D.C., JULY 28-30, 1965).
Citizens Advisory Council on the Status of Women, Washington, DC.; Interdepartmental Committee on the Status of Women, Washington, DC.
OF THE 446 REPRESENTATIVES FROM STATE COMMISSIONS, STATES, AND FEDERAL AGENCIES ATTENDING THE CONFERENCE, 390 WERE WOMEN. NINETEEN STATE COMMISSIONS REPORTED ACTIVITIES SUCH AS INFLUENCING THE PASSAGE OF EQUAL PAY OR MINIMUM WAGE LAWS APPLICABLE TO BOTH MEN AND WOMEN AND PARTICIPATING IN POVERTY PROGRAMS AND ADULT EDUCATION. PARTICIPANTS IN 11 WORKSHOPS DISCUSSED QUESTIONS OF POPULAR INTEREST, AND SIX DISCUSSED PRACTICAL PROCEDURES AND TECHNIQUES THAT ALL COMMISSIONS NEED TO BE FAMILIAR WITH. SPEECHES STRESSING THE IMPORTANCE OF WOMEN'S ROLE IN NATIONAL LIFE WERE PRESENTED BY LYNDON B. JOHNSON, HUBERT H. HUMPHREY, W. WILLARD WIRTZ, ELIZABETH CARPENTER, JOHN W. MACY, JR., MAURINE B. NEUBERGER, MARY DUBLIN KEYSERLING, WILLIAM J. COHEN, AILEEN C. HERNANDEZ, AND FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, JR. KEY IDEAS WHICH EMERGED FROM THE SPEECHES, REPORTS AND DISCUSSIONS WERE -- (1) WOMEN SHOULD RECOGNIZE AND FULFILL THE RESPONSIBILITIES WHICH ACCOMPANY NEWLY ACQUIRED RIGHTS, (2) BENEFITS OF LABOR STANDARDS ACQUIRED FOR WOMEN SHOULD BE EXTENDED TO MEN WHERE THIS IS APPROPRIATE AND POSSIBLE, (3) FATHERS, HUSBANDS, BROTHERS MUST BE EDUCATED TO ENCOURAGE ASPIRATIONS AND ACHIEVEMENT OF GIRLS AND WOMEN, AND (4) WOMEN SHOULD PURSUE EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION, FAMILY LIFE, COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION, AND EMPLOYMENT. PERTINENT FACTS ABOUT COMMISSION REPORTS, SUMMARIES OF WORKSHOP DISCUSSIONS, EXCERPTS FROM SPEECHES, AND A DIRECTORY OF PARTICIPANTS ARE INCLUDED. (FP)
