Overview and metadata sections

Princeton University. Women's Organization

The Princeton University Women's Organization (PUWO) was formed in the winter of 1972 to provide a body through which the women of Princeton University community (employees and students) could monitor and discuss issues related to employment and student life. The original structure of the organization called for a series of task forces working on specific issues, a coordinating committee composed of representatives from each task force, and monthly general meetings to inform the membership of task force and committee activities and to vote on questions of policy. The organization also ran panel discussions and other programs on women's issues.

Consists of clippings, correspondence, reports, and studies pertaining to issues such as tenure, staff relations, and student recruitment. Though undergraduates were allowed to be members of PUWO the majority of the material reports on matters affecting University faculty and staff.
