Women's Center to offer second session of group examining injustice

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.
