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.

Riot Grrrl: Then and Now

This upcoming Tuesday, the Women's Center is going to be featuring our first speaker of the semester, and we couldn't be more excited to have her here: Kathleen Hanna. At 7pm in Friend's Hall (SC-219), Kathleen Hanna will be speaking about her history in the Riot Grrrl movement and where women stand in today's music industry. Tickets are free at Roadrunner Central, so get one while they're available!

Everyone who can should try to make it to this event for these reasons alone:

1. She's an awesome feminist activist who has done so much to help with securing women's rights.

2. She has made some awesome music!

3. She has had a great impact on art, music, and feminism.

Although these are but a few reasons why you should all come out to this event, they are sure to interest almost anyone. We are super pumped for Tuesday, and we hope to see everyone there!
