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.

Happy Fat Talk Free Week!

Today starts Fat Talk Free Week, a nation-wide campaign striving to end "fat talk" and negative self-talk. We've all heard it..."I feel so fat!" "I need to go on a diet" "Does this dress make me look fat?" This language is in our vocabularies and has become such a custom of ours. We beat ourselves down and have learned not only to not respect and love our bodies but to harm ourselves in trying to conform to the ridiculous beauty standards we face on a daily basis. Let's do something to change this!

We are all beautiful...learn to love yourself!
