Description
A brief news segment describes a 1970s rally, sponsored by the Coalition for Child Care, held to call attention to the need for child care for students and university workers. During the 1960s and 1970s, an important feature of the women's movement was the unified call by feminists for the right to government-funded child care. For these second-generation feminists, achieving this goal would play a key role in liberating women from the oppressions of patriarchal family duties and would give her the freedom to enter the workforce. Speaking in the segment, Kathy Kelly says the single most helpful change for equal treatment on campus would be the establishment of low-cost, high-quality child care centers. A group of 200 rally participants, mostly women, marched to Morrill Hall after the rally. Virginia Watkins, president of the Twin Cities chapter of National Organization of Woman, says child care is one of the main interests of N.O.W., which supported the bill that was passed in Congress but vetoed by President
