The Gender Equity Centre is a centre for all Lakehead University students.

We initiate and support positive Feminist-Womanist action concerning gender, socio-economic status, ethnicity, religion, culture, family life, sexual orientation, gender identity and difference in physical or mental abilities.

Working from an anti-oppressive and feminist framework, this is a safe and inclusive place to meet new people, access resources, and get involved. We encourage communication, action, awareness, self-reflection and compassion.


LUSU Radio Hour every Thursday, 10-11 am and Queer Radio on Mondays, 6-7 pm. Visit LU radio.ca for the live-stream & more cool shows!

This activist and social media icon is a Black, kinky, poly, disabled femme and uses her social location to educate on the Medical Industrial Complex, challenge anti-blackness, and create space for those who are often made invisible by social institutions. ...

For this week's #ResourceRoundup we wanted to focus on a key area of theory and research that is indebted to the work of Black women. Each of these resources deals with a critique of the systems of prisons and policing featuring the thinking of Black activists, scholars, and incarcerated people to challenge us to imagine a world beyond incarceration and criminal punishment. What media challenged your conception of the criminal justice system?

Moving forward we’re going to strive towards better accessibility on this account. Starting with the text of each slide posted in the comments. Are there other accessibility features that you find helpful or have implemented to success? Research will be done, but all input welcome!
