Women's Higher Education: Some Unanswered Questions.
Westervelt, Esther M.
This document summarizes the Wingspread Conference on Women's Higher Education, 1972. Topics of conference papers and discussion concerned changes in women's education and changes needed for the future, four types of women students-undergraduate, graduate and adult women undergraduates perceptions of needs for the future, higher education and feminine socialization, plans for widening women's education opportunities, and the special needs of working class women. A questionnaire evaluation of the conference indicated that the conference may have achieved its goals to stimulate greater concern with planned interaction between practice and research and to lend at least mild support to those engaged in various specific types of enterprises. A list of participants and the evaluation questions are supplied. (MJM)
