"What about Women?" Historical Perspectives on the CSWE Council on the Role and Status of Women in Social Work Education (Women's Council)
Alvarez, Ann Rosegrant; Collins, Kathryn S.; Graber, Helen V.; Lazzari, Marceline M.
Journal of Social Work Education, v44 n1 p63-84 Win 2008
The Council on the Role and Status of Women in Social Work Education (WC), a volunteer committee of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), has a 37-year history. This article presents an overview of the WC from the late 1960s to September 2006 and acknowledges the needs, status, and contributions of women in social work education. Drawing on primary and secondary data sources, the authors articulate two central themes: (1) organizational development of the WC, and (2) contributions of the WC to social work education and practice. The mission and work of the WC remain relevant today, because there is still a need to monitor and advocate for equity for women in social work education. (Contains 2 tables.)
