Voke elevates voices through performance, workshops, events, collaboration, and online publication.

Our Mission        

The Women’s Center works across issues and identities toward collective liberation. Gender and sexuality have historically been central to our work and now serve as one of many points of entry into intersectional struggles and coalition building.

We seek to foster a self-critical and self-reflective community, intentionally directing our time, resources, and programming toward dismantling systems of oppression through education and action. We aim to provide a physical and intellectual space where all are able to collaborate, learn, and unlearn without judgment. We strive to make our work accessible to everyone who wishes to engage with it, firmly believing that this work cannot and should not be done in isolation.

The Women’s Center may be spatially enclosed within and funded by Yale, but all work within the university is intertwined with New Haven. We strive to build a deep and long-standing relationship with the city: realizing our mission demands that our community and our efforts extend far beyond our campus.
