Women's Centers: Where Are They? Revised.
Association of American Colleges, Washington, DC. Project on the Status and Education of Women.
This publication on women's centers provides a brief overview, information sources on women's centers, a listing by state of women's centers, and a listing and description of centers for research on women. It updates a 1975 listing of women's centers and focuses primarily on campus women's centers, as well as some community women's centers and organizations that may have some link with a college community. YWCA student associations are also included. The degree of diversity among the centers is striking, but all attempt to provide services for and about women. Some centers are highly academic, others are service-oriented, and others are primarily concerned with social and political change. Some focus on serving the typical (18-22-year-old) undergraduate woman, while others focus on serving faculty, staff, community, or re-entry women. Their activities are varied and include services such as counseling, continuing education, workshops, women's studies classes, resource centers, and child care. (SW)
