Title

Opinion "Women's progress occurs when it is convenient?"

Description

Student Alisa G. Mayor argues that the trend to recruit more women and minorities into the Sciences reflects a historic pattern of women’s progress in America only occurring at the convenience of men. She cites the invention of the typewriter and World War II as moments in American history when women were invited to work once men thought it was convenient for them. Mayor concludes that “Even today women’s advancement is in danger,” even though few houses can actually live on a single income.
