The Public Leadership Education Network (plen), a consortium of nine women's colleges and two national women's organizations, is distributing brochures, posters, and other visual materials to more than 23,000 high-school guidance counselors nationwide.

Awareness Encouraged

The posters and brochures encourage female high-school students to attend women's colleges and to seek ways to become aware and active politically once they are in college.

This month, plen is sponsoring a month-long seminar in Washington that is designed to provide women students with the opportunity to learn about the legislative process and the roles women play in the media, Congress, and special-interest groups.

Members of the consortium include Alverno College, Carlow College, Douglas College of Rutgers University, Goucher College, Marymount Manhattan College, Spelman College, Stephens College, Wells College, the National Women's Education Fund, and the Center for the American Woman and Politics.--sr
