Description

This announcement says that the first meeting of the Women's Lifestyle Committee will be on September 20th. It states that the purpose of the committee is "understanding men and women as partners in humanity rather than as rivals in their sexes." 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."
