[on the Women's Center] So one of the things that we negotiated right early in the time I was there was this ability of the school to accept part-time students during the day so that many of our women who would come in having heard about the center and being very nervous and uninformed about what higher ed was all about could experience it in the terms that were best for them and their families. We also ran lots of programs. This was during the time when people had a great misunderstanding of the women’s movement and did not realize that women who were raising families were also feminists.
