Women as World Makers

Part of the Nato Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 18)


The topic that I have chosen for my presentation is part of the quotation cited on the program for this symposium: “… the large-scale movement of women into the work force opens up the exciting possibility of creating a much improved society.” The Utopian title of my paper, “Women as World Makers,” therefore, can be condensed to this quotation. I only wish that I had the facts, and the inspiration, to give flesh and bones to this exciting concept.
