Few Good Women: Advancing the Cause for Women in Government University Park, Pennsylvania, United States. In 1969, President Richard Nixon created the Task Force on Women's Rights and Responsibilities that marked the beginning of a successful initiative to recruit and train women for upper-level governmental positions. Unfortunately, few of the women who joined the government as a result of this initiative left collections of papers for historians to review in the future. Many of the women are nearing retirement age or have retired; a few have died. Preserving the memories and reflections of these women on their careers in government service is a timely project. Their recollections, along with those of the men who were involved in the effort, will make a significant contribution to the documentation of the history of women in modern American political life.
