Brooklyn College Women's Union Meeting

The Women's Union at Brooklyn College was an organization comprised of many faculty and staff from the Women's Studies Program, but existed as a separate entity that would tackle political and administrative issues affecting women at the college. These notes from their inaugural meeting reflect the types of advocacy they tackled, from fighting for courses that explored lesbian sexuality to addressing cuts to student financial aid, welfare, and TAP, sexual harassment and safety on campus, and the ways that married women could be excluded from financial assistance.
