New Women’s Studies Journal Debuts at Case Western Reserve University

The Flora Stone Mather Center for Women at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland recently launched the Journal for Women and Gender Centers in Higher Education. Flora Stone Mather (1852-1909) was a major philanthropist contributing great sums of money to religious and educational organizations, as well as hospitals in Cleveland. Her father amassed a great fortune in bridge building, railroads, and banking. When he committed suicide in 1883, Flora took over the philanthropic activities of the family. She became a major supporter of women at what is now Case Western Reserve University.

The first issue of the new journal (available here) features a history of Case Western Reserve University’s own Mather Center, in honor of the upcoming 20th anniversary, a research article on the commonalities and differences among women and gender centers at R1 land-grant colleges, and a description and evaluation of an innovative sexual violence prevention campaign piloted by another university.

Angela Clark-Taylor, director of the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women, is the editor-in-chief of the new journal. She is a research assistant professor at the Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University. Before joining the university’s staff in 2019, Dr. Clark-Taylor was the founding director of the Violence Prevention Center and the director of the Center for Women and Gender Equality at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. She holds a Ph.D. in higher education from the University of Rochester.
