University education: Rich, “Claiming an Education” 

1977 college speech (Douglass College)

 

university education should include “an ethical and intellectual contract between teacher and students”

Implicit, however

Claiming rather than receiving an education

“The different is that between acting and being acted-upon, and for women it can literally mean the difference between life and death”

“One of the devastating weaknesses of university learning, and of the store of knowledge and opinion that has been handed down through academic training, has been its almost total erasure of women’s experience and thought fro the curriculum, and its exclusion of women as members of the academic community”

racial and ethnic exclusion as well (“even the sciences can be racist”)

“The contract is really a pledge of mutual seriousness about women, about language, ideas, methods, and values. It is our shared commitment toward a world in which the inborn potentialities of so many women’s minds will no loner be wasted, raveled-away, paralyzed, or denied”
