The Madison Caucus for Gender Equality updates the historic Faculty Women’s Caucus that was initiated in 1973 to address discrimination against women in the JMU workplace. The caucus reaches out to all professional women and men on campus, understanding that gender based workplace bias affects not only women but men and families as well. In the 2011-2012 academic year, dedicated JMU citizens gathered to discuss how we might continue the activism of the original caucus in the 21st century. Please consider joining the Madison Caucus for Gender Equality; there is plenty of work and good community to be shared.
