A Few Good Women...

Preparing the way for much future progress in the status of women in U.S. government was the work of a few good women and men in the Nixon administration. The story of their efforts and the results achieved are recalled in an oral history collection, "'A Few Good Women...' Advancing the Cause of Women in Government, 1969-74," recently archived in Penn State University Libraries' Special Collections Library, 104 Paterno Library. An overview of the project, including profiles, is available at


The Nerd Girls project takes an in depth and intimate look at women in engineering. It highlights their diverse talents and demonstrates their ability to work as a team striving to accomplish a challenging, but doable engineering project.

Nervy Girls ~ Guerrilla Girls!

a Well, I didn't know if this one really fits the theme, but it sure looked like some fun... The Thinking Woman's Magazine, is now dead. It was based on the revolutionary idea that young women enjoy thinking about issues beyond makeup and boyfriends, the volunteer-produced Nervy Girl! Fortunately, they've been reincarnated as Guerrilla Girls

While visiting, make sure to see the Guerrilla Girls' Bedside Companion where they tell the story of Maria Robusti, daughter of Venetian painter Tintoretto -- and other highlights in the history of western art -- and do NOT miss their poster exhibition

Also, grab a copy of their "DON'T STEREOTYPE ME! sticker, to print on adhesive paper, put up where it's needed most.

Women, Enterprise & Society:

A Guide to Resources in the Business
      This is an online publication that identifies materials in the Business Manuscripts Collection at Baker Library and documents women's participation in American business and culture from the eighteenth through the twentieth century. The launch of WES represents the culmination of a three-year project to identify and catalog resources for study of the unexplored sections of Baker Library's manuscript collections. Researchers will find, for example, that the guide does not include papers of major twentieth-century women entrepreneurs or corporate leaders. The guide does, however, include hundreds of individual items, such as account books, day books, letters, legal documents, and payroll registers. These materials clearly document the extent to which women were an integral part of the fabric of American economic and business life, participating in and contributing to enterprise and society in ways that were largely overlooked until recently.

Teen Girls Know Their Way Around The Net

A survey released by the Girl Scouts of the USA reveals new information about the behavior of teen girls online. Over half the girls (58%) reported they were the savviest computer users at home and 18% say they could hack into a school computer. Most of the respondents reported that they could use their tech knowledge to get around parental rules, with 86% saying they secretly chat, 57% can read parent's email and 42% can access porn sites. Parents who are not as tech savvy as their children are advised to keep abreast of Internet technologies and their children's online activities. From Karen Thomas for USA Today Go to:
