Study Course About Women Draws Praise By JAM N'OGGLE TIMES Staff Writer "It gives me hope of where I can go as a woman in a male-dominated society," statetl Janna Riley, a University of Arkansas student in reference to a relatively new phenomena -- a women's study course. The course entitled "Women and Literature" is taught by Dr. Margaret Bolsterli who was described w i t h admiration by another student as an "extremely gutsy woman." A native of Arkansas, Dr. Bol- sterli attended Hendrix College, received her B.A. from U A. her masters from W a s h - ington University at St. Louis, watit to do -- whatever their capabilities and interests are. Tracy Dates, a student, claimed that the course "is f u l filling a much needed position of elevating our consciousness and helping 115 as women, to a more fulfilling role " Couple Will Note Date With Party Mo., and her l*hD. From University of Minnesota. the A course like this one is different and may be frightening to the students at first admitted the professor. "I help them see that some of the things they are taught to hold dear are illusions, I lell them at the start it is going to be painful hut that the "incNnmined life, in my opinion, is not worth living. They cheer up by the end of the semester," she added. Terry Webb, a student en class, stated rolled the her own words: "This lack of understanding at first seems to frighten those who aren't nccus- tomed to this new approach, it is my opinion that it is very needed and very a ppropriate for not only today as women take the first step forward, but in future yoai's to come." One of the topics openly discussed in the class which is generally "held dear" by women is marriage. Dr. Bol: slcrli said she is not trying to discourage marriage a n d believes that most of her students should get married but t h a t they should know what they are going to cope with. "People .should be free to do what they want--which includes marry. She shouldn't feel that society condemns her if s h e stays single. Look at the conno- talion of the difference between a hachelor and an old maid," explained Dr. Bolsterli. "In my generation ynu had to have a husband or a career. My s t u d e n t s doti't have to make that choice but they do have to be strong to handle both," she added. . , The course takes an approach of critical analysis of women in literature through woman as writer and as reader. All of the assigned readings are written by women and many are about women writers. Dr. Rolsterli said, "Until very recently there have not been many books written about the ." actual experiences of women, ;- Tlie Feminist criticism is a way .". of looking at literature to create .*· an atmosphere in which writing '*, about the experience of women in our future." The professor rales the class as "marvelous 11 . "It's a very lively class, the discussions are good and 1 think there is hope for women. 1 have a lot of faith in the next generation," she said. As to the progress women have made, Dr. Bolsterli replied, "1 think there are visible changes that have come about in the last few years, it seems to me that there are m o r e women who are more sure that they want to enter into mate dominated fields such as medicine and law." This is the second semester the course has been taught and plans are being made Tor more s t u d i e s at the university in the future. Dr. Bol- sterli stated that a women's studies course in sociology is planned for fall of 1974 and that hopefully in 1975 there will be an interdisciplinary introduction women's studies course in the humanities division. The course is to be taught by a team including professors of biology, philosophy, psychology and English.

Barbara student Mclntosh, Dr. Bol- sludics? another slerli's class replied, "It's like discovering an entire heritage I never knew about because it simply hasn't been taught in history, political science, psychology or anywhere. There is a crying need for more women studies." lir::iiir Jll. ill!'lirSIII!
