About Us

GVSU’s Women’s Center is celebrating its’ 15th anniversary during the 2016-2017 school year!

“It was a collective voice that led to the creation of the center.”

The GVSU Women’s Center “defines gender justice as an on-going process, rooted in intersectionality, to dismantle systems of oppression in all spheres.” Our mission is to embrace diversity, strive for equality, advocate, provide comprehensive education, and encourage students to engage in various forms of activism.

This student-run blog serves as a platform for anyone and everyone who wants to share their ideas, experiences, and work related to existing social issues. It is a common misconception that the term “feminism” solely relates to women’s issues, but that is not the case – though it is a large focus. As a center, we strive to create an atmosphere where intersectional issues can be addressed. The mission of this blog is to discuss a diverse range topics, from the environment to racism to rape culture and the impact these issues have on our everyday lives, not just for women, but for all of society. The issues that plague our world today are not separate entities; they are inseparable in the way they operate. Because of this, it is up to us – the Feminist Voices – to speak up, speak out, and speak loud. We encourage all students to let their opinions be heard. We are the future, and it is up to us to shape it.

Your voice matters.
