Guam - The University of Guam's Center for Gender Studies was officially opened this morning at the Humanities and Social Sciences Building at the Mangilao campus.  Students can take gender studies as a minor at UOG, with one of the Center's goals being to promote activities and projects that highlight the need for gender equality. 

UOG senior vice-president Dr. Helen Whippy said, "Your gender influences the way people see you, and the way you behave, and the way society treats you. And we want to use that and not make us victims of everything, but to use that for strength. This is strength for the students and empowerment."

Also in attendance at today's ceremony was Nobel Peace Prize nominee Zohra Andi Baso, who performed the ribbon-cutting honors.
