Those who read the Winter and Spring issues of the Women's Studies Newsletter in 1979 may remember accounts of controversies among women which surrounded feminist thought, teaching, and research in all of West Germany, and especially in Berlin. The next chapter in the controversy, though far from the last, occurred last April at the Free University of Berlin, where three hundred people attended a conference on "Aims, Content, and Institutionalization of Women's Studies and Research," sponsored by Berlin's Senator for Education, and by the President of the Free University of Berlin. Foreign participants were invited from Sweden, France, Italy, The Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States. German participants included university faculty, administrators, students, and leaders of women's professional groups as well as women from the government, the Common Market, and the German Federation of Trade Unions.
