Hello Everyone:

We are now officially ending this Dialogue on Women and Girls in Science.
Many thanks to Gay Gordon, Sophia Huyer, Mary Susan Lindee, Jayshree Mehta, Mary
Thompson and Londa Schiebinger for offering their time, expertise, and
perspectives to this lively discussion. We also thank you, the members of
EDEQUITY for your enthusiastic response.

To share what we have learned and add to the broader discussion on women
and girls in science, WEEA will be disseminating the information generated by
this Dialogue in a number of ways including printed publications and features
on our web site <www.edc.org.WomensEquity> where we will be adding a new "room"
on science education. (As you know, the entire discussion already is archived
on the web site.) We will alert you as these new resources become available.

We would also like to take this opportunity to ask you what you thought of
the Dialogues we have had so far (on women and girls in science; gender and
disabilities; sexual harassment and Title IX; the Australian book, "Answering
Back"; and single sex education) and whether you found them useful. We also
welcome suggestions on how we can improve future Dialogues to better serve your

Please respond to the following questions and e-mail them back to the EDEQUITY
Administrator at Edequity_Admin@mail.edc.org by December 20, 1999.

Again, thanks for your participation.
