Following greetings and an introduction to the center by NWEC staff members, Dr. Roda gave a report on the current status of Canadian female researchers, who are increasing in number. After an exchange of opinions with staff members, she toured the Information Center for Women’s Education, the Women’s Archives Center, and the child care center, etc.
