Women's Group Seeks Official Recognition in the 1970s

Becoming an Official Student Extra-curricular Group
Date: 
1971-72

The Women's Group submitted a statement of purpose, criteria for memberships, rules, and list of officers to the Student Senate Committee in order to receive recognition as an official group on campus. Their purpose statement explained that they wanted to serve as a consciousness-raising group; to present films, speakers, and hold conferences that dealt with women in education or the Women's Movement; and to investigate potential discrimination at Dickinson. Any member of the Dickinson College Community could become a member, and the Women's Group would hold weekly meetings. Instead of officers, the club planned to have representatives for the group, who included: Abbie Adams, Rita Donegan, Barb Levering, and Melissa Maholick.
