UC Women's Conference

Title

UC Women's Conference

Description

[UCSD hosts the UC-wide women's conference, which was] the product of an undergraduate thought group formed . . . to read and discuss the cutting edge of feminist thought on the topic "Women of Color." The common goal was to come up with a conference which could best integrate the many different experiences of women, without privileging the experience of the typical brand of middle class white feminist thought.

The [UC Students Association] decided to allow UCSD to host the annual UCSA Women's Conference because they wanted to show political support for UCSD women. UCSD [was] the only campus in the UC system that [did] not have a university-funded Women's Center (McKay, 1991).
