Women’s centers were first established
on college campuses in the early
1970s to address the array of issues
that women faced: violence and inequities
in education, health care, employment,
and leadership, to name a few. In 1998,
the Women's Center at BGSU opened its doors to bring visibility to issues affecting women on campus, coordinate and
facilitate access to resources relevant to women's issues, promote the integration
of women's issues into campus culture
and discourse, and advocate for the
removal of barriers that inhibit the full participation of women in the University community.
