As we go to press with the first issue of our fifth year, it is with pride in our new format and an apology for being late. Unpredictable circumstances kept us from appearing in December, and one significant decision made us delay until now.
The decision belongs to the new National Women's Studies Association: that the Women's Studies Newsletter become its official disseminator of news and information. Elsewhere in this issue we print the policies established by the Association and accepted by The Feminist Press on behalf of the Newsletter. Here we'd like to talk about our sense of the moment and our expectations for the future.
