Reflections on the Women at Dickinson

May 1974

In a reflective criticism about womens political awareness in the Womens Newsletter, Joan Eltonhead examines feminism at Dickinson.  As a transfer student, Eltonhead describes the feminist dynamic on Dickinsons campus when she first arrived as seemingly non-existent, as there was no womens group on campus.  She goes on to say that Dickinson women are reluctant to call themselves femenists and seem to find it easier œto maintain a traditional sex role ¦ than to make a commitment to change.  She advocates a womens center at Dickinson and urges women to become more aware, ask more questions in classes, and help advocate for change on campus.
