Ten years before gaining official recognition as a program, female students and professors met to plan and implement the inclusion of Women's Studies courses at Portland State University. They held an event in the school’s ballroom and began offering ad hoc classes., later hiring a coordinator. Eventually Women’s Studies became an official program and then a department offering a major.
