would greatly appreciate your
help in an academic matter that
I have been faced with recently.
I am currently enrolled in a
class at Clarion University
of Pennsylvania titled "Women
in Marketing." We have just
been asked to provide our class
with a 15 minute presentation
on a matter dealing with women
in business. The topic that
I have chosen deals with how
the feminist movement aided
in the progression of women
in business. I have not been
successful in finding information
thus far. I only have a week
to complete this presentation.
If you have any advice, or know
of a place where I could find
the information, please let
me know. Thank you for your
for your note to FEMINIST.COM.
By "women in business" I'm assuming
that you mean women who--more
or less--work in corporate America.
If that's the case--I think
that you should contact Catalyst--which
is an organization that tries
to increase the number of women
on Fortune 500 boards and within
Fortune 500 companies. They
have also commissioned many
studies--family leave in corporate
America, women of color in corporate
America. So they have lots of
information about women in business.
Also, the U.S. Department of
Labor has a women's
desk. (Note, that although
some women have progressed "in
business" and specifically in
"breaking the glass ceiling,"
the majority of women are still
trapped in low-wage, poor jobs.)
