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.

Check out this awesome blog!

The theme of my Women in Contemporary Society class over the past few weeks has been reproductive justice, so I have been on this kick lately in learning more about what is going on right now. Since this issue will ultimately affect me for the rest of my life, I have been actively trying to learn more about the movement itself and what progress is being made. I think it is important that we all keep up-to-date on what is going on with the reproductive rights movement and how legislation is changing in our state. My professor and former Women's Center director, Mandy Restivo, has a wonderful blog that you should check out. Her posts focus on current issues in the realm of reproductive rights and what developments are being made here in New Jersey. Thanks, Mandy!
