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.

Yes everyone… you read the title correctly, our lovely puppies can now tweet what they are doing by using Puppy Tweets. This takes social networking to another level, Mattel is introducing a toy created canine community by associating consumers’ love of pets and with the oh-so-popular Twitter.
The Puppy Tweets comes with a USB receiver and a plastic dog tag that has a sensor to tell you what your dog is doing, and posts it as a tweet on twitter. The dog tag has pre-recorded tweets that are triggered by the dog’s activities through the sensors that are attached to it. If your dog is barking you might get a Tweet like “Bark…and the whole neighborhood barks with you!” When it’s sleeping, look out for “Had a wonderful dream about you. You were bringing me snacks!” And at lunch your puppy might say “You at lunch? Remember the two most beautiful words in the English language: DOGGIE BAG!”
Amazing isn’t it? Technology has evolved so much; look what it can do these days. As much as it creeps me out, I think it’s pretty legit! Here is the Puppy Tweet Website, where you can purchase Puppy Tweets via Amazon: http://puppytweet.com/. It’s available additionally at Target and Toys R Us, and they sell for $30.00. I wonder what else they come up with next time.
