So, you wanna be a blogger?

Why not start with us?! The Women’s Center is looking for 2-3 new volunteer bloggers to contribute to our blog.

The Women’s Center advances equity for women students, staff, faculty and alumnae across identities.

A unit of the Office for Equity and Diversity, the Women’s Center increases connections for women’s success, cultivating socially responsible leaders, and advocating for organizational culture change toward excellence for all.

This blog is designed to create a safe space for University of Minnesota and Twin Cities community members of all genders to learn about and discuss women’s and gender issues.

The blog focuses on a variety of issues including feminism, GLBTQA, anti-racism, body image, representation in the media, and more. Our regular bloggers are University of Minnesota students who are interested in making a difference. Over the past year, we have developed a wider span of readers and guest bloggers not only within the Twin Cities, but across the country as well. We encourage discussion and awareness of social justice issues that affect us all.

What’s in it for you?
