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.

Meet the Women's Center: Michelle and Janelle

Name: Michelle Cresci
Position: Office Manager
Major: Nursing
Year: Senior

Michelle's favorite Ice Cream flavor is Chocolate with Reese's Cups.

She is most looking forward to is Dan Choi, who is coming to Friend's Hall tomorrow to talk about social justice! Cue shameless plug...

Choi is a former US Army infantry officer who served in combat in the Iraq war during 2006-2007. He became an LGBT rights activist following his coming out on The Rachel Maddow Show in March 2009 and has been publicly challenging America's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy, which forbids LGBT service members from serving openly. Tickets are now being sold at Roadrunner Central with a $5 deposit which will be given back to at the door. Hurry! Tickets are going fast!

Getting back to the interview... One fun fact about Michelle is that she loves to sing/play guitar, but finds it extremely difficult to perform in front of others.

Her favorite YouTube video is Boy Sees Lobster For First Time.

Name: Janelle Talingdan
Position: Program Coordinator
Major: Psychology
Year: Junior

Janelle's favorite ice cream flavor is strawberry cheesecake ice cream, preferably from Dairy Queen.

She is excited for all the upcoming events, since it's her first semester at Ramapo! Janelle thinks that is is going to be  fun and interesting to see and experience all the fabulous events we have planned.

One fun fact about Janelle is that she loves to pop bubble wrap or balloons to de-stress herself!

Her favorite Youtube video is Jessica's "Daily Affirmation."
