Programs and Projects
Koryne Horbal Lecture Series
The Anne Pederson Women’s Resource Center is also committed to bringing quality women speakers to Augsburg College. This lecture series features women speakers of national prominence who address important issues that especially impact women. The series is named after Koryne Horbal, former ambassador to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women and consultant to the Anne Pederson Women’s Resource Center.
The Anne Pederson Women’s Resource Center recognizes the need for women to find connections in life, career, and education. The Center provides a forum to connect women and gives them connections to launch their own careers and educational pursuits.
Augsburg’s Women’s Story Archive
The Anne Pederson Women’s Resource Center is compiling the Augsburg Women’s Story Archive, which will consist of a series of interviews with Augsburg women. This archive will enable women to become interconnected with students, faculty, staff, and alumni who have come before them. Eventually, this archive will be linked online from the Center’s home page so that Students may access it via the Internet.

Feminist Film Series, Fall 2012:
Wednesday, October 3, 7-9: Immediately following the Student Feminist Collective meeting, the WRC will host a showing and discussion of Miss Representation, a film that “exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.”
