The Women's Studies Group was formed in the early 1980s to provide a vehicle for exploring issues and topics of particular interest to women. It is an intergenerational group, which brings together not only Central members but also women from throughout the community.
The members begin their time of fellowship by sharing a meal before moving on to the evening's main topic of discussion. With the help of books, articles, and guest speakers, the Women's Studies Group has discussed issues as diverse as women's health, the civil rights movement, women's role in the political process, artistic interpretations, and women in the Bible. The group meets in members' homes on the third Thursday of the month, September through May (excluding December).
How to Join
Women's Studies at Central is open to any woman who would like to attend. We are a very informal group. Dinner is served at 7:00 p.m. and different members sign up ahead of time to bring the pot luck dinner. It's fun to cook, but also a treat to come and eat and enjoy the cooking of others.
