The Andrea O'Donnell Womyn’s Outreach Association is an organization on campus with the explicit mission to empower and liberate the female student population of San Diego State University and the surrounding San Diego community.
The Womyn’s Outreach Association is a student-run organization on campus with the explicit mission to empower and liberate the female student population of San Diego State University and unequivocally has zero tolerance for sexism, racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, and fat-phobia. We are a multi-racial feminist group that focuses on issues of inequality and oppression that effect marginalized communities such as womyn, people of color, and LGBTQIA. Our primary focus is to eradicate sexism, genderism, homophobia, racism, violence, the control and abuse of the female body and mind, and other local and global issues that impact the lives of womyn. WOA contributes to the overall feminist goal of an equitable and just society for everyone through activism, education, discussion, advocacy, outreach, and the provision of resources to all individuals on campus.
From the AOD WOA President
The Andrea O'Donnell Womyn's Outreach Association strives to become a source of inspiration to the people of SDSU. Seeing WOA grow and progress as an organization has been astonishing. WOA has been working to build relationships with administration, students, faculty, and staff to address issues that affect our campus community. WOA encourages activism and organized change and we do that through building relationships with everyone. Feminism should make you question things and inspire you to want to be a part of the change. I urge you to join the feminist discourse!
The Andrea O'Donnell Womyn's Outreach Association was named in honor of the inspiring Women Studies student and Women's Resource Center leader who was murdered by her boyfriend in 1995. Andrea's work on behalf of all womyn inspires us to raise awareness and advocate for the victims and survivors of sexual & partner violence. Andrea's work to empower womyn carries on through the Womyn's Outreach Association.
