In lieu of my usual quarterly report on the work of the National Office—some of which is reflected in the news of this issue—it seemed appropriate in this pre-Convention column to share the substance of one activity. The following statement made on behalf of NWSA was my response to a request from Senator Harrison A. Williams, Jr., for testimony before the Senate Committee on Human Resources. This sort of public presence is one aspect of NWSA's function as a national voice for feminist education. Our purpose as an organization is not only to share experiences and information among ourselves but to educate and exert influence upon a larger community. Similarly, our Convention will in its totality provide the opportunity to express to ourselves and to others the state of our art and our concerns.
