In the spring of 1970, feminism was introduced into a small, private school in Brooklyn, New York. Woodward School students, 60% white, 40% black, primarily middle-class but with many on scholarship, range from nursery school age through eighth grade. The school is progressive, relying on open classroom teaching in lower grades and on individual attention to older students. Feminist change at Woodward was begun by a few women who had been in consciousness-raising groups. Through informal communication, a group of at first ten, then as many as thirty women began to meet to discuss what was happening to their daughters at school and to define their goals: an end to sex-role stereotyping and the beginning of real freedom of choice for boys and girls.
