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.

For preservation reasons, original analog and digital media may not be read or played back in the reading room. Users may visually inspect physical media but may not remove it from its enclosure. All analog audiovisual media must be digitized to preservation-quality standards prior to use. Audiovisual digitization requests are processed by an approved third-party vendor. Please note, the transfer time required can be as little as several weeks to as long as several months and there may be financial costs associated with the process. Requests should be directed through the Ask Us Form.
