The Sarah Doyle Center for Women and Gender strives to cultivate community across difference and inspire critical dialogue and collective movement-making. Our vision is to create a world without sexism and misogyny, as well as other oppressions. We work to assure that people who enter our doors are affirmed in their humanity and are inspired to create a more just world. Intersectionality, a term developed primarily by Black feminists, is key to contemporary feminist work, and it is key to the work of the Sarah Doyle Center.
