Nearly 350 delegates from all parts of India—from Gauhati to Gujarat, from Kashmir to Kerala—attended the five-day National Conference on Women's Studies, held at the S.N.D.T. Women's University in Bombay, April 20-24, 1981. Teachers, researchers, students, voluntary workers, and government personnel were among the participants-including 25 men. In addition, delegates from such neighboring countries as Nepal, Srilanka, and Bangladesh attended, as well as representatives of Unesco, UNICEF, the Ford Foundation, and such Indian organizations as the Indian Council on Social Science Research (ICSSR).

More than one hundred papers were presented; and, through a number of working groups, the conference sought to identify major problems affecting women in all areas of life.
