The Role of the University in Changing Women's Consciousness

Emerita S. Quito

Discipline: Education, Women’s Studies



This paper aims to show that while this belief is not altogether untrue, woman's place is not only in the home and that her role is not only to bear children, and that the one strong factor, if not the strongest factor that can contribute to this shift in viewpoint is the University. It will also aim to show, in the light of International Women's Decade, how women, through the University, can be a potent factor of change and national development.


It would not be amiss at this point to appeal to history to give us the necessary background and introduction.
