Content of worksheet is below:


• Recall an incident in which you first became aware of differences. What was your reaction? Were you the focus of attention or were others? How did that affect how you reacted to the situation?

• What are the “messages” that you learned about various “minorities” or “majorities” when you were a child? At home? In school? Have your views changed considerably since then? Why or why not?

• Recall an experience in which your own difference put you in an uncomfortable position vis-à-vis the people directly around you. What was that difference? How did it affect you?

presented at the Martin Luther King Memorial Breakfast at Saint Anselm College, January 17, 2011

In closing the speech he  said that we should all be involved in letting freedom ring from every city and state in the Union, and that we should all join in singing the words of the old Christian spiritual, “ Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last.” More >

RLC  A.W.A.R.E. Discussion
“Feminism: Old School, New School, or Classic?”

The Womens Issues Residential Life Community (RLC) is sponsoring a discussion of women’s and gender diversity issues in connection with the Shape of Diversity Project. Come discuss what it is like to be a woman at SAC and how Feminism applies (or fails to apply) to you.

“I do not want you to ignore my identity, nor do I want you to make it an insurmountable barrier between our sharing of strengths… I am your sister.” Audre Lord

An Open Discussion with Faculty and Students: How do issues of Diversity and Gender present Imagethemselves to the current generation of women at Saint Anselm College: Are women still struggling against a male-centered system of oppression and privilege? Are they newly empowered to take on the world on their own terms? Or are there types of women’s issues that still apply and are relevant across the generations.

Homemade Food and Refreshments will be served! Yum!
