Winter 1979


It's been a little more than a year now that I've been reporting on the Association in these columns, a little more than two years since there has been a National Women's Studies Association to report on. When friends and supporters ask, "How is it going?'" I've been forced to give a rather cryptic-seeming reply: "It's going steadily better, so even more is expected; but we hardly have resources to meet the original expectation, so sometimes it feels like it's going worse."

Often the next question from members has been, "When are we going to have the Convention?'" A Convention, so it seems, would indicate NWSA"s progress in establishing itself as a functioning organization.

NWSA is moving toward the milestone that the first Convention represents. There is every reason to believe that it will have been worth waiting for, and every reason to expect that the second and third Conventions will follow even more smoothly for groundwork laid this year.
