"Tough Times Ahead for Women"

Brooklyn College Women's Studies Program co-founder and professor of history, Renate Bridenthal, is featured in this Clarion article, which is the PSC-CUNY faculty union publication. The Clarion covered a speech Bridenthal gave at the CUNY Feminist Network Conference at the Graduate Center, in which she spoke about the cultural backlash against the feminist movement and predicted that women would experience disproportionate effects of the economic downturn in the early 1980s. However, Bridenthal is sure to note victories and strides made within feminist scholarship, such as the Women's Studies Program at Brooklyn College.
