The YDS Women's Center is a community and space that is welcoming and accepting of all people, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, dis/abilities, nationalities, and more. We strongly believe there is deep beauty and wisdom in all women, and it is our duty to seek out and honor this. We are committed to the advocacy of issues involving women, for women, and to all who identify as women. We will provide accurate and up to date information about women's health, gender-based discrimination, racism, feminism, sexism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, allyship and other topics. We accept the responsibility to grow, reflect on our own failings, situate our social locations, ask for help, and strive to be better allies. We promise to work collaboratively with other women, groups, and people on and off campus. We pledge to support all women in times of agreement and controversy. In short, the YDS Women's Center is and will commit itself to creating a safe and brave space on campus where women and allies can gather; share resources, knowledge and stories; and honor what it means to be a woman.
