Working Women United Institute is dealing with the problem of sexual harassment on the job by developing a national litigation project, by building a resource library, by conducting ongoing research, and by writing a handbook to be distributed to working-women throughout the country. They plan to provide both legal referrals and intervention counseling for victims of sexual harassment. Contacts are being made with labor unions, women's groups, and other local organizations to work on the issue of sexual harassment at the workplace.

   Now located at 593 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10021, WWUI is eager to hear from lawyers, women's groups, or any organizations interested in becoming part of their national referral network. (For information, please send a self-addressed, stamped business-size envelope. Contributions are welcome.) -- K.L.
