Luann Dummer Center for Women

The Luann Dummer Center for Women (LDCW) addresses the needs and aspirations of women. The Center’s educational programs, activities, and resources are available to students, faculty and staff of the university. These services foster the intellectual, spiritual and personal development of women, and promote an open and diverse environment at St. Thomas. By enhancing academic experiences and providing developmental opportunities, the Center assists women in achieving their highest potential. As the Center fulfills this purpose, it contributes to the entire campus community. The Luann Dummer Center for Women was established in 1993 by a special bequest from Dr. Luann Dummer's estate. 

The LDCW is located in O'Shaughnessy Educational Center, Room 103.

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood (2015) (368 Pages)

On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.

Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she became a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.

I AM MALALA is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.
