WRAC offers support group for "Women wanting joy without another"
IOWA CITY, Iowa --"Women Wanting Joy Without Another" is an
eight-week discussion group for women who want to break their dependency
on another person and explore the issues of being single. Offered by the
Women's Resource and Action Center (WRAC) at the University of Iowa, the
group will meet at 7 p.m. on Mondays beginning Sept. 8.
The group will discuss the messages given to women about being single.
"Why is it that every magazine from Cosmo to Redbook to Ladies Home
Journal to Time assumes that all women want to be married - or at least
attached?" asks Sally Andrews, group facilitator. "This group
will turn a critical eye to the magazines, books, movies, and ads that
refuse to allow women to be single and be happy. The group will also explore
how to move beyond those pressures."
"Women Wanting Joy Without Another" will also provide space
for women to share their personal experiences about being single, being
attached, and all of the emotions that accompany the different times.
