In the Spring of 1988 I received a note from Doug Blandy asking if I wanted to co-ordinate a panel on "Men in Feminism" with him. The idea of men working with feminist ideas was not new to our discussions. When we worked together at Bowling Green State University, we often wondered (and indeed frequently laughed) at how gender related the reactions of our faculty and students probably were to our successes and failures. Shortly after I agreed to coordinate this panel with Doug, I attended a conference in the Pennsylvanian mountains in "Women, Art and Society." This was my first major conference exclusively designed for women dealing with women's issues.
