Newest Course on Campus. Women's Studies.
Miller, Lindsay
This document presents a series of 6 articles that present the case for women's studies in today's colleges and universities. Our society has traditionally discriminated against women, not only in jobs and education, but also by defining the female role as a submissive one, where the woman's highest goal is to further the occupational success of her spouse. The purpose of women's studies is to redefine the female role in terms of the possibility of women attaining success and fulfillment through professional occupations rather than through homemaking and child-rearing. Courses in women's studies attempt to raise the awareness of the achievements of women through the normal educational process. During the 1971-72 academic year there were approximately 750 women's courses on 500 campuses, covering topics from the history and literature of women to sex, sexism, and sex roles. It is hoped by the leaders of the movement that women's studies will become even more widespread and will penetrate the consciousness of all persons in every phase of our society. (HS)
