Women Students' Cooperative Government Association
In 1921, three years after the College of William and Mary turned coeducational, female students formed their own elected student government and called it the Women Students' Cooperative Government Association. The WSCGA formulated rules of conduct concerning social behavior of female students. To enforce its rules, the WSCGA created an elected Judicial Council. Consisting of a chair or president and several associate members, the Judicial Council had the power to summon female students and try them for alleged violations of the WSCGA code. The hearings were conducted in secret and the rules of procedure were unlike a court of law.
