Mosaic; Volume 1 Number 6, January 1975. Focus Report: Women's Role in Various Cultures.
Rutgers, The State Univ., New Brunswick, NJ. Inst. for Intercultural Relations and Ethnic Studies.
The purpose of the Intercultural and Ethnic Studies Institute at Rutgers is to equalize educational opportunities for all ethnic groups in the United States at all education levels. The newsletter, Mosaic, announced here on a one time basis, is one of the Institute's means for disseminating information to accomplish that goal. The newsletter is issued monthly from September through June. Each issue carries information about the customs of different national and ethnic groups. This issue focuses on the woman's role in various cultures. Articles on the black woman in America, changing fashions for the 20th centruy woman, and the International Women's Year, are augmented by news articles on women in Japan and Mexico in the original issue of the newsletter. This issue also carries the androgyny test presented to national TV on the NBC program "Of Women and Men"; a guide to intercultural materials, articles, and other resources; and a continuing column entitled Cross-Cultural Exchange that carries anecdotes of adventures and misadventures in cross-cultural experience. Topics covered in earlier issues are leisure pursuits and holidays. (JH)
