Building Knowledge, Linking Ideas to Action, Bringing People Together...
The Abigail Quigley McCarthy Center for Women's Research, Resources, and Scholarship at St. Catherine University works to build a community of faculty and student scholars and activists working on issues of race, class, gender, and other differences; gather and share resources relating to these issues; and highlight the leadership and work of women at the University and in various communities for women's justice and equality.
Throughout its history, the Center has been a catalyst and supporter of many projects and programs that address women's issues, from the building of a strong Women's Studies program to a student-directed campaign to address the concerns of student parents. The Center's commitment to open, honest dialogue about tough issues and a belief in the necessity of work for justice form the backbone of the work we do, including:
- bringing together student scholars, activists and faculty to work on issues of race, class, gender, and other differences.
- gathering and sharing academic and financial resources.
- highlighting the leadership and work of women at the University and in communities for women's justice and equality.
