MISSION

The Gender Issues Centre is a centre for all Lakehead University students.

We initiate and support positive Feminist-Womanist action concerning gender, socio-economic status, ethnicity, religion, culture, family life, sexual orientation, gender identity and difference in physical or mental abilities.

Working from an anti-oppressive and feminist framework, this is a safe and inclusive place to meet new people, access resources, and get involved. We encourage communication, action, awareness, self-reflection and compassion.

 


LUSU Radio Hour every Thursday, 10-11 am and Queer Radio on Mondays, 6-7 pm. Visit LU radio.ca for the live-stream & more cool shows!

The Vagina Monologues is an episodic play written by Eve Ensler which began in 1996 at the Off-Broadway Westside Theatre after a limited run at HERE Arts Center. Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called the play "probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade."

In 2011, Ensler was awarded the Isabelle Stevenson Award at the 65th Tony Awards, which recognizes an individual from the theater community who has made a substantial contribution of volunteered time and effort on behalf of humanitarian, social service, or charitable organizations.

In Thunder Bay, The Vagina Monologues will be performed at the Study on March 28th at 7pm-9pm. Entry is by optional donation (that is, donate money if you are able (this is a fundraiser after all), but if you aren't able to donate money, we still invite you to come and enjoy!) Baking will also be for sale.
