Voices of Today's Woman Seminar Booklet Cover

In 1972 on October 5, 6 and 8, Dickinson held a seminar on women in
coordination with the Bicentennial Homecoming the same weekend.  The
seminar was "designed to examine the political, educational, legal, and
social conditions in our society which sometimes tend to reduce women's
participation as full partners with men in many aspects of life."  It was the first seminar on women ever held at Dickinson

exhibits.  C. Delores Tucker, Secretary of the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, was the major speaker.
