Women's Center to offer second session of group examining
IOWA CITY, Iowa --
A new support group for people who want to actively resist injustice is being
offered by the University of Iowa Women's Resource and Action Center. "Awakening
Our Self" will begin meeting Wednesday, Oct. 20 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the
Women's Center, across from the Iowa Memorial Union.
"'Awakening Our Self' is a six-week group that provides
a safe and supportive environment to discuss issues, challenge our beliefs
and consciously resist patriarchy," says Rachel Pickett, co-facilitator of
the group, "because being an activist can be difficult."
Please call the Women's Center at 335-1486 for more
information or to register.
