In the summer of 1978, twelve women and men, scholars from all over the U.S., met in New York to participate in a seminar on cross-cultural studies of women in society. The seminar was led by Dr. Eleanor Leacock, professor of anthropology at the City University of New York, and sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. This series of programs grew out of that seminar. This episode is "Women in Pre-colonial Ashanti," a talk by Dr. Shirley Strickland of Randolph Macon College in Virginia. Produced and hosted by Eileen Zalisk.
