Women’s Center Shut Down at Amherst College for ‘International Women’s Day’

Is it ironic that the women’s center at a liberal college shut down for a general strike and to celebrate ‘International Women’s Day’?

The Women’s and Gender Center (WGC) usually provides a number of resources to women, including menstrual products, sexual health resources, self care items, and pregnancy tests.

However, in accordance with the women’s strike, the WGC will only open for “community and dialogue” between “women and their allies,” preventing women from accessing the WGC’s normal resources on International Women’s Day.
