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.



Join us for 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!


At the end of a hard week, everyone deserves some decompression time. Join Sue and Steph for a "Feminist Yarns" intro, along with tea and cookies, from 11-2pm today.

Feminist Yarns will continue running regularly on Thursdays from 2-4pm the rest of the semester :)
