I 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 time.

Sincerely, Maggie

Thanks 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.)
