For the International Women's Week, Women's Centre is hosting a guest lecture with Dr. Kim Nguyen. Dr. Kim Nguyen is a Communication Arts professor at the University of Waterloo and will be presenting about how the university can be a place to explore feminist decolonial praxis. This will allow students to understand the intersectionality between feminism and colonialism and learn about how they can initiate change as a part of the university community.
This event will be held on Teams Webinar. Registration for this event will end 3 hours prior to the event and the event link will be sent 2 hours prior to the event.

IWW Guest Lecture
The Women's Centre aims to provide a female-positive and supportive environment on campus for all women and trans* folks. We’re run by dedicated student volunteers that help create a safe space for everyone. We hold workshops, events film screenings, and campaigns to educate on various issues through an intersectional feminist lens.
The Centre provides students with sexual health resources such as condoms, pads and pregnancy tests. We have peer support hours where students can drop by for support on any and all issues. The Women’s Centre also has an extensive library of over 900 books that cover a variety of topics surrounding all women and trans women including plays, poetry, queer theory, indigenous, philosophy/religion/spirituality and employment/education/economy! Subscriptions to magazines such as Bitch and Herizons are available. Make sure to stop by the Centre and come visit us!
We pride ourselves on being intersectional and providing a safe space for students to go; everyone is welcome at the Women's Centre!
