Brooklyn College Women's Organization Executive Meeting Invite

The letter to the Brooklyn College Women's Organization (BCWO) executive committee invites them to a meeting to plan for a general meeting later in the month. The invitation documents the activities of the first group to convene at the university to address women's issues. Written by Renate Bridenthal (history), the group's ambitious agenda documents BWCO's role as the birthplace of the Women's Studies Program, Women's Center, Day Care Collective, and the sex discrimination lawsuit brought against CUNY on by women faculty who were discriminated against in hiring, salary, and tenure.
