March 18, 2011 –Historian Barbara Slaner Winslow, an Antioch College trustee, discusses the role of Antioch College alumnae in the launching of the second wave of the women’s movement. Winslow, a 1968 graduate of the College, brings her expertise in women’s history to bear on the discussion of the key roles Antiochian women played in this important and radical social movement that changed America. Currently a professor of women's studies in the School of Education at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, Winslow is also a founder and director of the Shirley Chisholm Project of Brooklyn Women's Activism. She received her Ph.D. in women's history from the University of Washington, where she helped found Radical Women and Women’s Liberation Seattle.
About Antioch College
Originally founded in 1850, Antioch College redefined liberal arts education in the 20th century by initiating an entrepreneurial and experiential curriculum through the development of its hallmark cooperative work program. Many of the now-common elements of today's liberal arts education - self-designed majors, study abroad, interdisciplinary study, and portfolio evaluation - had an early start at Antioch College. Ownership of Antioch College was transferred from Antioch University to the Antioch College Continuation Corporation in September 2009. The newly independent college will admit its first class in the fall of 2011.
