Founded in 1974, the Women’s Center was established to:
Dismantle, from a feminist perspective, all forms of oppression, including but not limited to those based on ability, age, class, ethnicity, gender, race, and sexual orientation.
Advocate for an equitable environment free from violence and harassment based on gender, race, and sexual orientation.
Create an anti-racist, non-sexist, queer-affirmative space where all people can feel valued and safe.
Facilitate and strengthen connections among people across lines of difference through programming and educational campaigns.
Integrate an appreciation of Women's Gender and Multicultural Studies across the disciplines.

I know it happened a few years ago, but I first heard about it today in my media ethics class.
I have issues with "Wife Swap" to begin with, but this is ridiculous. First of all, why does it have to be the wife? Second of all, why -in most cases- does it have to be a family with a mom and a dad?
And in this case, why would you sue the show for swapping your wife with a gay man?? If it says either male or female in the contract, why is it called wife swap??
