Welcome to the University of Victoria’s Women’s Centre website!

We are located in the Student Union Building in room B107.

The intentions of the centre are to constantly be recreating an anti-oppressive community space for self-identified women, non-binary and genderfluid folks to gather, share and learn from one another.

Please stay tuned as we are working on updating the website.

THIRDSPACE

thirdspace, our anti-racist feminist zine is seeking submissions until March 20th and we would love to include your voice!

In society and schools, feminism is often brought up and discussed in a one-dimensional way. This is also common when cultures, religions, sexualities, disabilities and other identities and experiences are discussed. In this issue of thirdspace, we want to showcase how we are unified by intersectional feminism, but not uniform in identity. How does gender impact your identity?

Everyone is welcome to submit and all forms of expression are welcome and encouraged, so send in writing, art, photography, music, or anything else of your creation.

Submissions are to be sent to: <<thirdspace.zine@gmail.com>>
or to Box 3035, University of Victoria, Lekwungen Territory, Victoria BC, V8W 3P3.
