The Abigail Quigley McCarthy Center for Women’s Research, Resources, and Scholarship is committed to open, honest dialogue about tough issues and a belief in the necessity of work for justice, building a community of faculty and student scholars and activists working on issues of race, class, gender, and other differences.
The Center for Women is named after Abigail Quigley McCarthy, a 1936 graduate of the College of St. Catherine who distinguished herself as an award-winning college teacher, author, and supporter of movements for civil rights and peace. She was respected for her character, courage, and perceptive commentaries on contemporary American life, especially regarding women’s contributions and experiences.
