It’s hard to believe that there’s still a stigma around menstruation, but it’s a reality in today’s world. Click the link in our bio to read an article about one girl’s journey with discrimination through her school based on menstruation. So worth the read! https://msmagazine.com/2020/08/03/menstrual-equity-title-ix-education-discrimination-and-menstruation/ #feminism #menstruation #education #equalrights

August 26th marks 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment which promised women the right to vote. It has been a century and we are still struggling to live in the fullness of that promise. Women take the stage is a national concert and rally that will both celebrate this legacy and challenge us to expand the right to be heard to those who are still silenced. Swag give away to students who tweet their favorite quotes and moments with #womenwakethestage and @character_WFU

Come share it with us and discuss relationship requirements and responsibilities. To register, access the google form in our link.tr.ee or on the Corq app.

Join us for Wake Up with the Women’s Center summer session II edition! Asia will be leading us in a gentle yoga to get our morning started right. Use the the google form in our link.tr.ee to get the zoom link for Wednesdays at 10am.

Please join us for open dialogue as we explore what it means to be a feminist, the relationship between being a feminist and being anti-racist, and how we can incorporate our values into our daily actions.

As we reflect on the events of this last week, we are at a loss for words. It is an impossible task, to create the perfect message that is both comforting and educational, simultaneously a call to action and a call to support, a mix of aspirational spirit and tangible next steps. We hope that you will forgive us for not having the words as we continue to process the news that unfolds daily. What we can say is that the Women’s Center is actively engaged in working to understand our role in the struggle for racial justice and we are committed to uplifting Black voices, especially Black women, Black trans people, and all people who are so often the targets of structural violence in our country.

Please join us this Wednesday at 10am as we launch Wake Up with the Women’s Center for Summer Session I featuring a gentle yoga session with Asia Parker. To register use our link.tr.ee!
