One of the virtues of Female Studies VII (The Feminist Press, 1973) is that it enhances our awareness of the fact that women's studies is in a new phase. Among the features of that phase are: 1) an international interest in women's studies; 2) more respect from foundations and government agencies; 3) a concern for women in the curriculum of secondary and primary schools; 4) a worry about both the continuing hostility and indifference on the part of traditional academics and the danger that apparent converts may be little more than exploitative bandwagoneers; 5) consolidation within existing programs; and finally, 6) the temporary crystallization of a number of models to follow for people and institutions who wish to begin programs.
