Check out the full schedule of Fall events hosted by the UW Oshkosh Women's Center.
Check out our preliminary Spring calendar! We are firming up some of the details yet but we have another great semester planned. Also, don't forget about our weekly events, such as our wellness program, and our support/discussion groups (including women's empowerment for female staff and faculty at UW Oshkosh, a domestic violence/intimate partner violence support group for female UW Oshkosh students, and a biweekly discussion group with female veterans on the Oshkosh campus and in the community).
Join us several times throughout the term for our film series! Why a film series? In accordance with the Women's Center mission and vision, and in the context of the campus-wide focus on Liberal Education, our film series is designed to improve the intellectual and practical skills of our participants and to emphasize our responsibility as individuals to engage in active and integrated learning.
These panels use popular culture as a mechanism to analyze how gender is understood. What does The Hunger Games popularity say about feminism, race, and the role of women? Is the Game of Thrones empowering for women? Join us for these panels on popular culture as we debate and discuss the role that popular culture has in our lives.
Learning how to effectively negotiate a salary is one way to combat the wage gap. Not sure what "wage gap" is? It's the oft-cited statistic that women make 77 cents to a man's dollar. But it's more complicated than that. Race, ethnicity, and gender are all a factor, with Hispanic women facing the largest pay gap.
