New England Women’s Center Conference

November 7th, 2013 in Activism, events, Feminism

Is November your favorite month? If not, now it’s going to be because the CGSA is putting on a CONFERENCE on November 16th!


The mission of the New England Women’s Center Conference is to create discourse surrounding the organization of inclusive spaces by exploring the intersections of our privileges and oppression. The term ‘inclusive space’ extends to more than just women’s centers. Issues of gender are frequently forgotten in discussions involving social change. Women’s issues are not confined to four walls, and we would like to convey that to all attendees.


To learn more and to register, please attend the Facebook event and check out our website. See you all there!

Getting a Grip: Mastering Your Sexuality with Oh! Megan, This Thursday

February 20th, 2013 in events, Feminism

Join Megan Andelloux for this two hour-long interactive lecture on developing your sexual self-understanding: from becoming comfortable with what you want to learning how to communicate those desires to partners. You’ll learn more about understanding and entertaining your own wants and needs, what other people are secretly into, masturbation techniques (fundamental to exploring your sexuality!), and verbal and nonverbal communication tools. A special focus will be given on how to either give enthusiastic consent or turn people down considerately. Anonymous questions will be taken from audience members and answered during the presentation, so get your muscles pumping and come with queries in hand! Check out the Facebook event.

Candlelight Gathering for Bicyclists Killed

Public Relations Coordinator

BOSTON, DEC. 6 – A cyclist was killed today after being struck by a tractor-trailer at the corner of St. Paul Street and Commonwealth Avenue around 8:36 a.m. The identity of the victim has not been released.

Boston police have closed the intersection and Boston University has alerted students that Commonwealth Avenue is closed to eastbound vehicle traffic from Pleasant Street to St. Paul Street.

This is the third bike fatality in the area since early this summer and the second near Boston University’s campus. The first involved a CAS student who was killed in an accident with an MBTA bus.

As a way to show our community support and sorrow, we are organizing a candlelight gathering later today at 6pm on Marsh Plaza. The gathering will serve as a way to remember the victims and help the healing of our community after this tragic event. We will raise awareness of safety as well as show solidarity for the members of our community who have been affected.

The Center for Gender, Sexuality and Activism strives to make our community safe for all students. We encourage biking as a feminist approach to sustainable forms of transportation that upholds values of independence and empowerment, as it is more accessible to those who cannot afford cars or public transportation. We acknowledge that discourse around bike safety is important, both for cyclists and others who use the road.

Please direct any questions to Swanson Ninan, Public Relations Coordinator at The Center for Gender, Sexuality and Activism.
