Hello all,

Attached is a very important report just completed by the Graduate Student
Council and members of HGWISE.  (Harvard Graduate Women in Science and
Engineering)  This is the report generated by the parents' survey many of y=
ou
completed a few weeks ago.

This is a *fantastic* document that represents an enormous amount of though=
t and
work, and I urge everyone to take a look.  There are some surprising findin=
gs
here, one being the discrepancies between the humanities and the sciences. =
 I
know the file is large, but I wanted to send it out since the meeting to
discuss its findings is tonight.

I also want to thank, again! Kyle Brown, Karen Ruff, Abby Bracha, Amanda
Evans, Gurtina Besla, Maria Gulda, Marissa Hummon, and Nigel Delaney for th=
eir
dedication and peristence with this.  (and most of them don't even have
children!)  You can discuss the report with them tonight at 7:00.  (Kids are
welcome)

--Christine
