An historical examination of the development of women's societal role traced by Diane Feeley, Coordinator of Women in the Arts Committee of National Organization for Women (NOW), New York. Feeley gives examples of past societies in which women were more productive and played a far more active role than our own. She sees the view of women as being "valueless" as having emerged within the last 150 years, and encourages women to utilize resources to regain their equal social status.
