Articles on women's studies and females in higher education are presented in this publication. A University of North Dakota project that sought to promote the integration of new research and scholarship results into the curriculum is described in "Women's Equity Committee Offers a Model Project," (Leola Furman, Robert Young). Historical perspectives on the exclusion of the contributions of women in college studies and current biases toward women as students and teachers are addressed in "We're Not Pretending Anymore: Women's Studies in the Curriculum" (Sheryl O'Donnell). Past, present, and future issues concerning math education for women are covered in "Women's Math Problems Can Be Solved," (David J. Uherka). Perspectives of a woman journalist on doing a professional job and the prospects for women in top executive positions in society are offered in "Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch" (Jessie Goddard). Additional articles and contributors include: "Portrait of a Powerful Female Leader in Brittany, France" (Martha Kay Parker); "Emma Mott, Lady Instructor, 1884-85" (Elizabeth Hampsten); "Rural Teaching Is Not Safe" (Charles McCanna's 1944 letter); and "The Study of Women Proceeds" (Sandra Donaldson).
