The contributors to this volume seek to prove in various ways that
women are competent, responsible individuals who do not need
special protections and dispensations from the state; nor do they
need to have standards lowered for them to be able to compete
effectively for jobs or acceptances to institutions of higher
education. Using careful research and objective interpretation of
data derived from well-designed studies, these essays examine such
diverse issues as Freud and his contributions to feminism; how men
and women relate to one another in the workplace and what they
learn from each other by working together; how American feminists
are perceived by leaders of foreign women's movements; and how the
claims of women for refugee status in war-ridden societies such as
Haiti and El Salvador are neglected and denied. Copublished with
the Women's Freedom Network. Contributors: Deborah Anker; Asa
