CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa's Women's Studies program will conclude its 'Women on Fridays' discussion series at noon, Friday, April 25, in Baker Hall, Room 161. The topic for the final discussion will be 'Women's Studies in the Community -- the Community Speaks.' Representatives from the Family Service League, the Iowa Women's Foundation, Opportunity Works, the Cedar Falls/Waterloo Business and Professional Women, and the YWCA will discuss women's issues in the community and brainstorm ways to work together.

Susan Hill, director of the Undergraduate Program in Women's Studies, said the discussions are about 'creating community through the exploration of the history and purpose of women's studies in the academy, at UNI and in our community.'

The event is free and open to the public. Those attending may bring a lunch; dessert will be provided.
