The Women's Center.
Stimpson, Catharine R.; And Others
Barnard College has created a Women's Center that devotes itself to the task of reaffirming the dignity, autonomy, and equality of women. For too long society has held that women are less rational than men, less capable than men, and thus that educating women is less useful than educating men. Replacing myth with fact is the responsibility of everyone. What the Women's Center hopes to contribute is, first, a dialog about the problems, the place, and the potential of women in contemporary life; second, new bonds between a college and women away from college; and third, fresh insight for undergraduates about what it means to be a woman in modern times. In this brochure are a series of brief remarks about men, women, and society, and about women and Barnard and the Barnard Women's Center. The comments touch on the necessity for Women's Studies; Barnard's research collection; women and the academic world; women and work; and the cultural context into which the Women's Center fits.
