Biographical history

The University of Victoria Women's Centre was established in 1981 in the Student Union Building subsequent to the Women's Action Group lobbying of the Student Society Board of Directors. A Women's Centre Advisory Committee proposed that the Women's Centre provide a referral service, a drop-in centre, and a library. Additional activities include lobbying, self-defence workshops, political skills workshops, speakers, and other events. The Centre is run by the Women's Collective and members give input on issues of health, social services, economic equality, international women, post-secondary education, and feminist theory. In 1982 the Collective began the student feminist newspaper The Emily. The Centre has been affiliated with many groups including: the Canadian Federation of Students Womens Caucus, the Victoria Status of Women's Action Group, and the National Action Committee on the Status of Women.
