LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL
Washington, D.C., September 8, 1975. Hon. ABRAHAM RIBICOFF, Chairman, Committee on Government Operations, U.S. Senate, Washington, D.C.
DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN: As a congressional adviser to the World Conference of the International Women's Year, I submit to you and the Committee the following report on the Conference, including my comments and observations.
It was an honor to serve as a congressional adviser to the Conference. Because of my service on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and as a member of the U.S. delegation to the 29th session of the United Nations General Assembly, I have had the opportunity to work in every way I could to help improve and strengthen the role of women in economic development. The Conference provided an excellent chance to further this effort. As a member of the Government Operations Committee I appreciate the role the Committee can play in assuring that the U.S. Government promotes equality for all men and women. The Committee also has a role in assuring that the United States, in its relationships with the United Nations and other international organizations, assists in improving the status of women worldwide. Finally, as a member of the U.S. Commission on the Observance of International Women's Year, I realized the importance of U.S. Government implementation of the proposals passed by the Conference.
It is my hope that the following report will serve both as a factual resource and a guide to action. The report describes major activities and proceedings of the Conference, with emphasis on the efforts of the U.S. Delegation. It also includes guidelines and resolutions passed by the Conference. In addition, I have suggested ways in which the U.S. Government, and Congress in particular, can implement the World Plan of Action adopted by the Conference. Because of its oversight responsibilities in the operation of Government activities, the Government Operations Committee can play a major role in this effort. I have outlined some suggestions for Government Operations activities in the Recommendations for Action section (page 14).
Two Government Operations Committee staff members, one from the majority, Marilyn Harris, and one from the minority, Hannah McCornack, participated in most of the Conference proceedings and served the entire U.S. delegation. I appreciate your willingness to make it possible for them to help represent the Committee and the Senate. I was also assisted by Julia Bloch of the Senate Nutrition
