Abstract

The issues women's groups present when they come to seek foundation grants often open up areas for discussion that literally strike uncomfortably close to home; they are often challenging cherished assumptions about the patriarchal family and the educational system which nourishes it. They come seeking funding for a new academic discipline called "women's studies"; or for support of litigation to abolish the sex discrimination which, foundation executives are shocked to discover, pervades our legal system. Outraged groups of mothers can document, and want to challenge, the sexism in textbooks and children's television. Women of all races want support to develop new educational and employment opportunities, designed to serve the real needs they have, as they perceive them.
