Welcome from the Director

Welcome to the UMKC Women’s Center Blog!

This blog is designed to create a safe space for UMKC students and Kansas City community members to learn about and discuss women’s and gender issues. We envision this blog as a space where we can come together to post on and discuss the hot topics of the day relating to women and feminism. Please take note of the phrase “safe space” and be sure to check out our Comments Policy.

While UMKC Women’s Center staff members will provide the majority of the posts, we also welcome guest posts written by students, staff, faculty or community members. If you are interested in submitting a guest post, please contact Brenda Bethman, Director of the UMKC Women’s Center or Kristen Abell, Assistant Director of the UMKC Women’s Center.

We are excited about setting up our new technology tools to better connect with UMKC students and the Kansas City community! This blog is only one of the ways you can connect with the Women’s Center–please be sure to follow the links on the left side of this page to join our Facebook group or follow us on Twitter! And be sure to check out our website as well. If you have comments on our blog, website, or suggestions for ways the Women’s Center can serve you better, do not hesitate to e-mail me at bethmanb@umkc.edu.

I look forward to exciting discussion!

Brenda Bethman
