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.

16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence is the campaign coming up at the GIC. This is part of a global movement to raise awareness about gender-based as a violation of human rights. This campaign takes place between November 25th (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) to December 10th (International Human Rights Day). Check out our page for more information on the events
