The Acadia Women’s Centre is a place where women (and men) can come and build new friendships as well as learn more about many different women’s issues from other Acadia students, many of whom share the same concerns and passion for positive change. The Women’s Centre brings together women, men, trans and intersex people of both the Acadia and Wolfville communities to support women and women’s issues. The Women’s Centre is a feminist organization run under the principles of support, inclusion, and respect of differences, which aims to raise awareness and provide event programming on the Acadia campus. Past initiatives of the Women’s Centre have included: pink ribbon campaign, healthy eating cookbooks, international performance artists, an all-female coffee house, a Montreal Massacre candlelight vigil, and the student production of the Vagina Monologues, as well as a fundraising open mic even for the Stephen Lewis Foundation. This year the Women’s Centre will be continuing many of these initiatives well as new and exciting projects such as an Empowered Women speaker series and more music and charity events on campus and in the community. The Centre is a positive space where women can come for support, guidance, or a friendly face. The office is available to anyone wishing to access any of these services or to just come and chat! The Women’s Centre holds weekly meetings, and everyone is welcome to attend.
The Acadia Students’ Union (ASU) is happy to provide students with the Peer Support Centre, located in 503 of the NewSUB (up the stairs closest to The Union Market).
