dc.description Thesis (M.A., History)--California State University, Sacramento, 2016. en
dc.description.abstract This thesis explores how feminist activism at California State University, Sacramento (CSUS), in the Seventies, transformed the university. My research utilizes archival sources, newspapers, and oral histories from women who participated in the movement. This paper focuses on four forms of feminism present at CSUS: labor, liberal, academic, and anti-rape. Those who identified with these forms of feminism challenged unfair maternity policies, fought for the creation of an on-site child care center, confronted the sexist ideology that dominated employment practices, and addressed the university traditions and customary practices that objectified and sexualized women. en
