In this article, we present the history of the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women at Case Western Reserve University, written around the time of its founding. We put this in conversation with the proposal which was submitted to university administration as justification for the creation of the Center for Women. In pairing the snippets of the proposal with details of the Mather Center’s present programming and resources, we are able to show how we are living up to the mission of our founders and the benefit to our campus community of having a women’s center on our campus.
