Institute for the Study, Redefinition and Resocialization of Women.
Farians, Elizabeth
Women have been traditionally discriminated against and have been brainwashed to overlook this discrimination by the society in which we live. However, more and more women are becoming discontent with their traditional roles as wife, mother, and housekeeper, and are demanding their full and equal rights as persons. The university has an important role in developing women and men and for preparing them to meet the challenge that a changing society offers. It is therefore suggested that universities create an Institute for the Study, Redefinition and Resocialization of Women as an independent institute or interdisciplinary department in the university. The Institute would contain 2 divisions: the Division of Woman Studies and Research of Women, and the Division of Continuing Education. Such an institute would provide women with the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to participate in a more representative way in decisionmaking whether in government or in community or business.
