The Bairnwick Women’s Center is a student-led movement that seeks to educate and to empower the Sewanee community by promoting social justice, equality, and voice.  The Center celebrates and challenges notions of traditional understandings of gender and sexuality in the Sewanee community, and is dedicated to inspiring open and honest dialogue. It serves the campus as an alternative to traditionally “male” models of leadership, thought, and participation. It works through an inclusive and dynamic feminist framework that celebrates diversity and respects difference. The Center refuses to accept sexist, homophobic, racist, classist, and other discriminatory behavior and practices on campus.
