Maryjean Suelzle, a graduate student in sociology at the University of California (Berkeley) and the vice president of the Women's Sociology Caucus there, speaks on "Women in the universities" at a teach-in on the oppression of women at San Francisco State College on December 10, 1969. In this talk, Suelzle analyzes statistics and university attitudes which reveal discrepancies between the sexes as both students and faculty in the universities and in academia in the 20th century. Suelzle also speaks on the conflicting aspirations of women with higher education who end up making a career in homemaking rather than in their chosen field of study.
