The B-word Dialogues 

Students from Communication, Psychology, Sociology, Women's & Gender Studies, and additional disciplines will bring what they are learning in their classes to this discussion about whether words like bitch and pussy have been or can be claimed, reclaimed and/or re-purposed; whether such words are appropriate to use in any context; whether there are parameters around when, by, and with whom such words can be used.
Join the dialogue as students bring these questions and more to the Conference Room C/D upstairs in the Wood Center Thur Dec 5th at 1pm.

The Holiday GIFT DRIVE is ON! Stop by the Women's Center, 112 Eielson Building, UAF, now through December 20th with unwrapped gifts to help us fill this humongous box with donations for the Interior Alaska Center for Non-Violent Living. * Bring gifts that are new or very lightly used. Toys, hygiene items, household items, diapers, electronics, anything really (these are families who had to leave their homes, sometimes with only the clothes on their backs, so anything is helpful!) Gift cards are also greatly appreciated! * All gifts need to be UNwrapped. (IAC needs to see the items so that the gifts can go to those who most need them.) Help us, and the fine student organizations sponsoring this gift drive fill this box to overflowing!
