Transcript WHOSNNHO WHQ'SNNHO WHCSNNHO Katherine Schneider, Ph.D. (Little Rock, Ark.) is a native of Kalamazoo, Mich. She received her bachelor's degree from Michigan State University and then took a doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from Purdue University. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Arkansas where she teaches general psychology, abnormal psychology and a course she initiated in the psychology of women. Schneider traces her feminist awareness to age 22 when she became involved in organizing women's consciousness- raising groups and in starting a SCHNEIDER women's center while in graduate school. These experiences, she says, "gave me a more militant perspective on our struggles for equality and self-appreciation." She also does part-time counseling which she describes as feminist—helping each person "with her individual right to determine her lifestyle." Cindy, her Seeing Eye dog, accompanies her to the conference. Merle Nelson (Portland, Me.) is representative from Portland to the State of Maine House of Representatives. She graduated magna cum laude from Lesley College and holds an M.Ed, degree from Harvard University. Her activity in community affairs ranges from positions on school committees and cultural projects to work in Rehabilitation Educational Programs. She has taught blind children and emotionally disturbed- gifted children and was at one time head of the Educational Therapy Department of the Maine Medical Center. As a freshman in the Maine House of NELSON Representatives, Nelson introduced the Displaced Home- maker's Bill, an act to provide for supervised work and social programs as alternative sentencing for juveniles, an act to revise services for mentally retarded persons, an act to exempt solar and wind energy equipment from sales tax and an act requiring immunization of children prior to their entry into grade school. All of her bills have passed. Kari Lavalli (Dearborn, Mich.) is, at 17, the youngest member of the Michigan delegation. She says, "I am a feminist and I wish to represent the under-18 age group at this conference. People in my age group are rarely represented in such bodies" as the Houston conference. Lavalli's early concern with feminist issues led her to a legal battle with her local school system. In 1974 she successfully filed suit against the Dearborn school system to enter an all-male shop class. Lavalli is a member of the National Organization for Women, the Ecology Club and is a former Girl Scout. LAVALLI Gregoria Baty (Agana, Guam) holds numerous degrees in education and dance and has attended Harvard University in modern dance technique, composition, ballet and jazz.
