The Academic Feminist: We Heart Women’s Centers, Part III

UPDATE 11/17/14:

We regret that we did not note that survivors have filed a Title IX complaint and law suit (PDF) against University of Connecticut alleging discrimination in violation of federal law. The UConn Women’s Center’s personnel and conduct is implicated in these legal actions; this interview is not an endorsement of the center.

Welcome back, Academic Feminists. Today we have the last in our three-part series on women’s centers. In this column, I asked Kathleen Holgerson (left), from the University of Connecticut Women’s Center, and Jennifer Graham (right), from Georgia College’s Women’s Center, to discuss the use of Title IX to address gender-based violence on college campuses.
