S It is with great pleasure and optimism that I accept the Director position for the Center. The

3 i .1 ,,,-1,,. : I :-",,, ,,,r ,i-- .' .' .: anter's future.
Accepting this position is a bittersweet moment for me. Both my mother and grandmother would
have been tremendously proud to know that I was given this opportunity. They came to this country
right after World War II to flee the dictatorship of Trujillo in the Dominican Republic. As divorced
single mothers, with little formal education, they worked in New York City's garment district, and
gave my generation an opportunity to go beyond high school The day I received my doctorate was a real family cele-
bration. Though my mother and grandmother are no longer with me, I feel they share in the opportunity my colleagues
have entrusted to me. In all I endeavor to do, I like to take the time to acknowledge the two most important women in
my life as my mentors and unwavering supporters.
I came to the Center for Women's Studies and Gender Research in 1999. I was living and working in the Southwest
at New Mexico State University before coming to Florida when I was presented with the opportunity to come to the
University of Florida. I recently had an opportunity to return to the Southwest where I have fond memories, but again I
chose the University of Florida. The Center has a tremendous future ahead of it. Our proposal for a Ph.D. in Gender
and Women's Studies is marching ahead. Our new building is under renovation with a move projected for the fall of
2005. The first endowed professor in the Center is here (Dr. Florence Babb). The Center is projected to grow both in
faculty hires and graduate student admissions Our undergraduate majors and minors continue on an upward path. We
have several conferences planned including one we are co-sponsoring with other State of Florida universities hosting the
2005 National Women's Studies Association conference to be held June 9-12 in Orlando, Florida. The next phase of the
Center's growth will be its doctoral program. Our goal is to have the doctoral program up and admitting students within
two years. In addition, I hope to develop new opportunities for the Center with the University of Florida Press
I am fortunate to be given the opportunity to lead the Center for Women's Studies and Gender Research on solid
ground, thanks to the work and legacy of directors before me. To think that the Center just about three decades ago
began out of faculty offices and where it is today is a testimony to a community that I will look to as we build on those
early efforts. I look forward to contributing to that legacy.-Milagros Perla

Farewell Letter From
the Departing Director
Dear Friends and Colleagues.
In January, I accepted a position
in our College as Associate Dean for
Centers, institutes and Inlemational
Affairs. I did so with very mixed emo-
tions My time as director of
Women's Studies and the Center has
been among the best years of my
academic life. 4I have enjoyed working with colleagues
and students in the program, and getting to know Its many
friends. Together we accomplished a great deal in the
past few years, and I know there is much more to come. I
am, of course, still a member of the Women's Studies fac-
ulty and intend to continue to contribute in any way I can
to the Center. I will, in fact, oversee the construction
phase of our move to Ustier Hall, slated now to run
through October. And the Center is in my "portfolio" as
Associate Dean, which will allow me to advocate for our
mission.
Meanwhile. I am very pleased to know that Dr.
Milagros Penla will be the new director. Milly has been
with the Center since 1999 and has been an active and
creative participant in the Center. She has some great
ideas for ways to keep our programs growing and strong.
She has been a confidant and friend, and I know that she
will do an excellent job.
I want to thank all my colleagues and the students and
office assistants who have contributed to the program dur-
ing my tenure. In particular I want to thank Paula
Ambroso. without whom Women's Studies at the
University of Florida would be a very different, and bleak-
er, place -Angel KIolek-Folland

Women's Studies and Service-learning
Dr. Stephanie Evans has structured her spring section of
WST 3015. "Interdisciplinary Perspectives of Women" to include
a community service-learning component.
Service-learning is a pedagogy that pairs academic course-
work with community service. Students learn through structured
reflection exercises such as journaling, class discussion, and
small group dialogue. Students read theories and case studies.
then volunteer at community agencies; they compare the written
text with the lived text. The major assignments for the course
are a double-entry (reading and service) journal and a final
paper that answers a question the agency wants answered
about how the student related their service experience to the
agency mission. In addition to a semester of student volunteer
work, the agency will receive a copy of the student final papers
to aid in grant writing or reporting, volunteer recruitment, or
other administrative agency needs.
Because Women's Studies grew out of feminist activism,
community service-learning is a natural companion for women's
studies classes. Students choose their own service site, which
allows for a wide range of service work to be done in the
Gainesville community. The UF Office of Community Service
has formal relationships with almost 90 community agencies;
thus, students can choose an agency that is relevant to their
own academic discipline, their professional goals, and their per-
sonal interests.
During the spring 2005 semester, students are volunteering
at the Child Advocacy Center, Gainesville PRIDE Center, Easter
Seals, Baby Gator. Association for Retarded Citizens. Arbor
House (a homeless shelter for women). Girls Club, Family
Visitation Center. Gainesville Correctional Facilrty. Sheriff's
Office. Humane Society, American Cancer Society, and Corner
Drug Store (a center for substance abuse prevention) among
other agencies
Dr. Evans is also teaching a service-learning course in
Alncan Amencan Studies (AFA 4905). "Mentoring Local Youth."
in which students mentor at31 Big Brothers/Big Sisters, PACE pro-
gram, the Reichert House, and the Boys and Girls Clun.

Trysh Travis Receives National Endowment

My book, The Persistence of Sentiment: Contemporary American Literature and the Culture of 12-
Step Recovery, is part of 1he scholarly sub-held known as history of the book. Unlike literary critics.
who look primarily at the way the language in a Text constructs meaning, book historians usually look
at The workings of the institutions that create and distnbute Dooks, and at the way people make use of
books in their lives The Persistence of Senftiment treats both of these things. examining the develop-
ment of the publishing industry that supported the growth of the 12-Step recovery movement (which
began with the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935). and the place of reading within the therapeutic culture that

Visiting Scholar: Ruth Meena
I am very much looking for-
ward to the time I spend here at
the University of Florida Through
the faculty exchange program
with the University of Dar es
Salaam in Tanzania. This
semester. I am co-teaching the
course, "Gender, Race, and the
l Media" with Dr. Helena SArki
While I am not a media specialist, I do bring practical
experiences in using media for transformation, in cri-
tiquing media, and also in creating alternative non-tra-
ditional media for transformation. I look forward to
sharing my experiences with the class and also team-
ing from the students.
In addition to the class, a good portion of my time
at this university is going to be spent in the library,
using the rich resources that are available. This is
going to be a wonderful opportunity for me to use this
space creatively to update my conceptual theoretical
frameworks, which will enable me to engage in the
ongoing debates and discourses in political science,
gender, and human rights
I am also currently processing data on field
research conducted while I was home. "Gender Based
Violence in Institutions of Higher Learning in
Tanzania I intend to utilize the resources at the uni-
versity to familiarize myself with literature on this topic
from this part of the world I also hope to familianze
myself with the policy interventions that some ot the
universities have in place as a measure to make the
university institution a gender fnendly environment for
men and women Indeed, this is going to be a very
valuable space for me to do this work
I am definitely looking forward to building new
social networks, meeting colleagues and making new
friends here at the University of Florida This is going
to be a valuable investment -Ruth Meena

"Liberalism and Married Women's
Property Rights in 19th Century Latin
America: A Comparative Analysis"
By the beginning of the twentieth century, married
women's property rights in Latin America had evolved
along two distinct paths. All South American countries
sill maintained their colonial marital regime, either partial
(Hispanic America) or full (Brazil) community property. In contrast,
Mexico and the five Central American republics had established the sepa-
ration of property regime--where each spouse owned and controlled
his/her own property and its fruits--as either a formal option or as the
default regime.. MoreoveT, whereas South American countries maintained
the colonial inheritance regime of restricted testamentary freedom with
only some although important modifications. Mexico and Central America
had adopted full testamentary freedom. This raises the question of why
Latin America is characterized by such divergent paths with respect to
family law.
Dr. Deere is the Director of the Center for Latin American Studies and
a Professor of Food and Resource Economics. She will present her lec-
ture on Friday, April 22 at 2:00pm at 219 Dauer Hall, Ruth McQuown
Room,-Carmen Diana Daere

Local Activists Protest FDA
On Jan. 7th, thirteen women from Gainesville joined 40 other
women from New York, New Jersey, Washington D.C., and
Philadelphia at the FDA headquarters in Rockville. Maryland. We
went to pressure the Food and Drug Administration to make the
Morning-After Pill (MAP) over- he-counter for all women, and to protest
delays in the approval process.
The MAP Conspiracy-a national coalition of feminist groups work-
ing on this issue-held a sit-in after a short press conference in front of
the FDA. We wanted to block access to the FDA building just as the
FDA has blocked women's access to the Moming-After Pill. Nine were
arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
While the FDAcontinues to delay its decision regarding The
Kelly Mangan and Erin Mahoney, Chair of the New York Morning-After Pill, the action was successful in bringing much-needed
Reproduc ve Right Task Force public attention to this important issue. The fight for reproductive
I Phoic. y ean, S.rruimani rights is an on-going struggle; we need to continue to take direct action
and demand freedom over our own bodies.
MAP Conspiracy does not accept the FDA's ruling and will continue to pass out MAP in defiance of the prescrip-
tion requirement. If you want the Morning-After Pill over-the-counter for all women If you want to keep your access to
birth control pills, condoms, and abortion join a feminist group that actually fights to protect and expand these rights.
Freedom is never granted, it has to be won. We need you to win greater freedom for women.
You can help by signing our MAP pledge at www.mapconspiracy org and by telling FDA drug chief Steven Galson
that you want MAP over-the-counter nowl (301-594-5400) For more information and to get involved, call 352-372-2361.
