Plans for Women's
By ANN MARIE FAZIO
Daily staff writer
Positive and negative aspects of
plans for a new Women's Center were
discussed yesterday by a group of en-
thusiastic Ann Arbor women who say
they want to provide a facility designed
to meet the wide variety of needs of
The center would be created as a non-
profit corporation providing members
with equal voting power in policy and
decision making. It would be geared
toward providing supportive services to
women, according to the planners.
"Women supporting women," ex-
plained Shirley McNew, a member of
Facilities in the center would include!
several retail businesses, workshop and
performance areas, recreational
facilities, and low-rent office space for
supportive services for women and
In addition to serving the community,
said Susan Edwards, one of the
project's originators, "this is a
business." The profits earned at the
retail stores will be put back into the
center, she explained, partially going
toward helping find more low rent
space at other locations for women's
One major problem is making sure
all women's needs are provided for,
said Nancy Scott, an original
facilitator. The center will "include as

The most controversial regulations
targeted yesterday include:
-The Department of Education's
Title IX rule under which federally
assisted colleges and universities must

giving equal emphasis to male and
female sports events.
-A section of the Rehabilitation Act
requiring federally assisted public
buildings to provide access for the han-

-Guidelines issued under the Civil
