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.

Modern (& Ironic) Feminist Portrayal

Here are a few fun videos for feminists who can laugh at themselves (or other feminists)! Portlandia is a television series running on the Independent Film Channel, starring Fred Armisen (of Saturday Night Live), and Carrie Brownstein. Brownstein is currently the vocalist and guitarist of Wild Flag, and was a former member of Sleater Kinney, a band well-known for their feminist/left political stance. Perhaps a Postmodern representation, Portlandia employs an ironic parody-critique of various social groups, including feminists. Check it out!
