"Fabulous & very informative--it was great to network with other students."
"[The International Women's Day Google Hangout] was truly
ground-breaking as it gave students the ability to have a once-in-a-lifetime
experience to interact with women who are truly changing the world. Although
these women we interacted with were thousands of miles away, you could feel
their passion as agents of social change when they spoke about their work."
"As a woman, I am very passionate but more so heartbroken over issues
like these toward women. I want to learn more & advocate (but more
so act on) change; it just hurts."
The Women's Center
Our Mission: We strive to build the personal, academic, and professional capacity of women by providing opportunities to connect, serve, and lead.
In an effort to create a welcoming environment for all students, the Women's Center's design is meant to provide a warm, comfortable work and meeting area for students, staff, faculty, and community members.
We have a small workstation of five computers that are available during regular Women's Center hours for any students to use. (This is a great secret spot during finals week when everyone is camped out in the larger computer labs.)
Our conference room comfortably seats eight people (or more, if you really want to squeeze in around the table), and can be closed off from the rest of the Women's Center if you require privacy for a meeting. Stop in to check it out or reserve the room!
The Women's Center has a large interdisciplinary selection of books, including books on gender within history, sociology, political science, which are all available for check-out or for general reference. Donations are welcome; however, only relevant topics will be accepted, due to limited space. The Women's Center would also like to suggest that researchers view the Women's Studies Subject Guide compiled by Polk Library: http://www.uwosh.edu/library/subjects/womens-studies.
The newest edition to our library is a small collection of feminist and gender neutral children's stories. Stop by on March 2nd, 2013 for our Rosie the Reader program, where Rosie the Riveter will be reading these stories to local children.
Our classroom is a wonderful gathering place for small meetings, group projects, or just catching up with friends. We have a projector and screen that can be used for presentations and films, and there is a great little patio outside for use in the warmer months.
We have a cozy, private room offset from the rest of the Women's Center for breastfeeding mothers with direct access to our gender neutral bathroom. This room is a quiet place set away from the busy, bustling campus where you can relax with your baby.
