Resisting injustice is focus of new Women's Center group

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- How injustice affects us and others in the world is the focus of a new support and discussion group offered by the Women's Resource and Action Center at the University of Iowa, beginning Wednesday, Sept. 8.

"'Awakening Our Self' provides a support network for men and women who want to actively resist injustice, because being an activist can be very difficult," says Rachel Pickett, co-facilitator for the group.

In addition to providing "a safe and supportive environment to talk about issues affecting us, 'Awakening Our Self' will help us challenge our beliefs and consciously resist patriarchy," Pickett adds.

The six-week group meets at the Women's Resource and Action Center, 130 N. Madison St. (across from the Iowa Memorial Union) from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Please call 335-1486 to regiser.
