PRA Archive #: 

Part 11 of KPFA's presentation of the University of California's Medical Center Conference "The Challenge to Women: the Biological Avalanche" held in San Francisco this year. This is Part 3 of "Suffocation in Suburbia." In this recording Jean Paul Mather, D. Sc.(1914-2007), University President and General Manager, Purdue Research Foundation (Lafayette, Indiana) presents "The Emergence of Womanpower," a talk on the underdeveloped and unrecognized productive abilities among women. Part of Mather's thesis has to do with egotistical male views of and myths about women, and how these views limit women's potential and productivity. Mather encourages society to promote women in the areas of mathematics, engineering, and science.
