Women’s Intercultural Center
The Women’s Intercultural Center is a rural grassroots organization based in Anthony. Its mission is to provide a place for women to learn and work together to develop their social, spiritual, economic and political potential. The Center was founded by 14 women of the community and two Sisters of Mercy to provide alternative education for immigrant women with limited education and to address isolation which often led to depression. The Center originally served 35 women of the Anthony community; today it serves over 3,400 women from Southern NM and West TX.
