Dear Professor Howe:
As you may recall, I wrote to you describing the state of women's studies at the University of Virginia in the summer of 1975 (Women's Studies Newsletter, Vol. IV, No. 1). Since that time, there has been almost no perceptible change in the administrative policy at Virginia; things seem to be getting worse rather than better. In the last two years, the university has denied tenure to all female and black assistant professors under consideration. The statistics I will quote are almost exactly the same as those cited in 1975.
