Proposal for a Women's Center at Brooklyn College

Just after the establishment of the Women's Studies Program at Brooklyn College, program co-founder Tucker Farley began to push for a Women's Center as a complementary counterpart to the academic program. This proposal envisions the Women's Center as the hub of direct services and feminist activism on campus, and highlights the need for support to low income women, women of color, and caregivers. Services proposed include flexible programming, childcare, transportation, counseling, work training and placement, as well as research on women's work, health, prisons, families, and neighborhoods.
