'Women’s Cultures' topic of class Nov. 15 in Orcas Senior Center

Skagit Valley College presents "Women’s Cultures — Matri-Centered Societies and the Goddess" Nov. 15, 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Orcas Senior Center.

Delve into the key cultural anthropology concepts of the matri-centered culture of South India and the Native Americans in the Southwest. You will explore the diverse cultures of women in history and what is known archaeologically about women, matri-centered societies and the goddess — along with questions of matriarchy, patriarchy, empowerment and the infinite possibilities that exist for society and culture from the past to the future.

The cost for this workshop is $55. For more information or to register, visit Skagit Valley College San Juan Center, 221 Weber Way, Friday Harbor, or call 378-3220.
