Spring 1973


Women's Studies at Sacramento began with two courses in the spring of 1970, "Women in the Modern World" and "Women in the Law," an extension course: today, there are twenty-six courses and eight extension courses. That fall, 1970, history professor Joan Hoff Wilson and government professor Kirsten Amundsen sponsored a course on the women's movement, "The Liberation of the American Woman," oriented for both day and evening women students as well as for community women.

Speakers included Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Florynce Kennedy, Robin Morgan, Aileen Hernandez, and many others.
