Voices for Women. 1980 Report of the President's Advisory Committee for Women.
President's Advisory Committee for Women, Washington, DC.
This report presents the recommendations of the President's Advisory Committee for Women, a blueprint for action to complete the unfinished business of bringing equality and fair treatment to the women of the United States. The report is divided into six chapters. Chapter I describes the Committee's mandate, its tasks, and the process that led ultimately to this report. Chapter II presents an overview of the legislative history of The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), sets forth reasons why the ERA is needed, describes recent Federal initiatives, and lists recommendations. Chapters III through IV cover the most critical issues in each of the broad areas of the Committee's agenda: Education, Health, Human Services, and Work and Income Security. Each of these chapters contains an overview of the major issues in the field and a report of what was said about them at the hearings. Issues selected for inclusion were those most frequently raised at the hearings. At the end of the discussion on each issue, the Committee's primary recommendation appears. Additional recommendations are included at the end of several chapters. Also included in each section is a selection of federal initiatives that have been taken to address the problem. Appendices include the executive order establishing the President's Advisory Committee for Women, a list of Committee Members, a compendium of government initiatives responding to the Planks Project, and a public Agenda Foundation study.
