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.

Feminism Comes in Waves

On Monday, March 3rd, there will be an amazing event  that will be ringing in  Women's Herstory for this year. Put on by the Diversity Action Committee Student Club in conjunction with the Women's Herstory month planning committee, Feminism Comes in Waves, will be a discussion exploring the idea of feminism and what that means to different people. Many people interpret feminism as well as other social justice movements in different ways. Feminism Comes in Waves is an attempt to understand  if there is a common goal for all of those who identify as feminists, or if each feminist is as different as the different waves that crash on shores of a beach.

This event will be CEC for many different classes, so I encourage you all to check in with your professors in order to verify if it could apply for CEC for you.

Feminism Comes in Waves will be held in SC136 (The Alumni Lounges)  at 7:30pm and there will be lots of food, and raffle for t-shirts and a $25 gift-card.
