Through more recent inclusion forums, the Women’s center recognizes it’s deep history of ‘radical feminisim’ as exclusionary, racist, trans exclusive, and we are committed to the process of unlearning elitist social justice mentalities and relearning through dialog in order to implement policy changes, as individuals, as a collective, and as a community.
The Centre is committed to facilitating on campus and off campus social justice organizing, workshops, and other events. Supporting marginalized individuals who have historically been excluded from such activist organizing we strive to work in a horizontal manner and work to ensure that our events are accessible to all those who wish to attend and contribute.
We are committed to facilitating a creative, collaborative, community space through initiatives like our Thirdspace zine, growing food at the Campus Community Garden, racialized and Indigenous women’s circle, and our all genders/agender feminist library.
The Women’s Centre is governed by a feminist collective that uses a consensus based decision making model and is driven by volunteer participation. If you wish to see workshops, events, or changes at the Centre we encourage you to attend a collective meeting or contact us in any way you feel comfortable.
