The intent of the Yale Divinity School Women’s Center (YDS WC) is to provide a supportive community for engagement with liberative praxis on experiences pertaining to all women.* YDS WC seeks to facilitate intersectional discourse in a way that seeks common ground for women in light of their differences. It hopes to empower students in their relationships and academic, professional, and sacred spaces.
*When we use the word “women,” we make a conscious effort to uplift and acknowledge a designated space for the experience of womanhood today, while also being attentive to the fact that people of many gender identities and experiences relate to womanhood and femininity in empowering and complicated ways. We use “women” less as a category of gender and more as a particular way of relating to the world.
