Description

A photo in the 1978 yearbook shows a banner for the Women Lifestyle Committee's annual "Lifestyles Conference," which was held from January 27-29 in the winter of 1978. The theme of 1978 was "Partners in Humanity." The Women's Lifestyle Committee was a student organization created with the goal of helping Westhampton women achieve the ideal of femininity at the time. Although it was branded as a self-improvement effort, it reveals the deeply entrenched gender norms that existed on campus at the time, and the emphasis placed on them. Every year, the Women’s Lifestyles committee held “February Follies,” a week-long event with the goal of helping women "look their best."
