A Community-Based Resource Center for Women: Process for Developing a Network.
Landman, Laura Lea
This paper investigates the changing role of women, the decline of the "feminine mystique," the "empty nest" stage of marriage, sex role stereotypic counseling in secondary and postsecondary educational institutions, and other problems resulting from the increasing numbers of women enrolled in colleges and universities in the United States. It describes a review of the literature which indicates that women who are re-entering college frequently need a special set of services, which differ from those of the traditional student. Selected school programs which have responded to women's expressed needs are discussed. To serve the special needs of older women today, and women of the future, a process model for developing a community-based resource center for women is presented. The proposed centers utilize human service agencies and educational resources of communities. The emphasis is on augmenting and coordinating rather than duplicating services for women in communities throughout the nation. (Author)
