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.

Honey Boo Boo
For all those who say that this show is exploitative I say nay. This show portrays a real family who loves each other no matter what. On one episode Honey Boo Boo even remarked "Ain't nothing wrong with being a little gay, everybodys a little gay." She knows at 7 years old what some people in their 30s and 40s have yet to grasp. I believe that if more children were accepting like Honey Boo Boo, we could be progressing further along in our struggle for equal rights. Honey Boo Boo is a down to earth little girl who just loves her family like anyone else.
