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.

Keynote Speaker: Kristin Macdonald
At the age of 29, after breaking her arm for the second time, she realized her vision was degenerating from a condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa. Although her eye-sight is poor, her vision is perfect, referring back to the inner spirit and going after your goals and dreams. She is extremely empowering and after hearing her life-changing speeches, you are deemed to live a life that you love, enjoy and truly dreamed of.
She also hosts her own radio show “Second Vision,” which has repeatedly landed in the top five among hundreds of pod casts. It broadcasts from AIRSLA.org and provides entertaining and life changing messages, since it is web based, her radio show is accessible from anywhere in the world and applies to everyone, not just the visually impaired. This event is a must see and will definitely count as CEC credit, we look forward to seeing you there, off-campus visitors welcome.
