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.

The Most "Typical" Person in the World

This video clip was released by National Geographic Magazine and describes the most "typical" human face on the planet. Interesting that the most "typical" human face on the planet has minimal TV or media exposure. Now, obviously there is a smaller Chinese population in the United States than say, China, and this influences who is shown on our televisions. Although, I do think it's important for Americans to understand that there are entire other countries on this planet...sometimes I think we tend to forget. Maybe seeing someone who doesn't look "just like us" more often would give us a nice reminder?
