Women in 1971.
Citizens Advisory Council on the Status of Women, Washington, DC.
This publication summarizes the activities during 1971 of the Citizens' Advisory Council on the Status of Women in achieving its goal to suggest, arouse public awareness and understanding, and stimulate action with private and public institutions, organization, and individuals working toward improving conditions of special concern to women. Areas of concern were: (1) appointments of women to policy posts, (2) the Equal Rights Amendment, (3) Supreme Court decisions, (4) education, (5) equal employment opportunity, (6) child care, (7) maternity benefits for employed women, and (8) National Women's Political Caucus. Some recommendations by the Council were: (1) State commissions on the status of women should review local public school systems to determine the degree of sex discrimination, (2) The Federal Government should use its influence to secure a higher priority for after-school care, making full use of existing public school facilities, (3) A woman should be appointed to the Supreme Court, and (4) the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission should expedite preparation of a model affirmative action program now underway.
