coordinators and other volunteers. Supported by the Associated Students of UCI, the Center's goal was to become the umbrella
organization for all women's programs on campus. Its activities and services included a library, a calendar of activities,
and several committees. The Center also offered a reading group, self-defense classes, consciousness-raising groups, day care,
and information on health services.
