The Women’s Center works on many events throughout the year! Be sure to keep up with our website and our social media for updated information on your favorites!!
Love Your Body is a national movement for body positivity. We want everyone to love themselves and we use social media and campus advertising to remind folks of how great they are! The WC collaborates with other offices and organizations to plan and implement events on our campus, such as Love Your Body Day, Eating Disorders Awareness Week, and Operation Beautiful.
Today’s students only have so much free time and we need to spend that time wisely. This series is built so that attendees walk away with skills that they can use right away. We want Mizzou students to be self-sufficient and ready for anything! Dear WC is by Mizzou students for Mizzou students. Past workshops have included information on sustainability, web presence, and car care.
SNB is a national movement to reclaim historically devalued ”women’s work” while having radical conversations with friends and new acquaintances and creating fabulous fashions! Join our Stitch ‘N Bitch crew every Wednesday while classes are in session. We meet in the WC Lounge from 4-6pm. It’s open-house-style, so you can stop in for a bit or stay the full 2 hours! Bring a project you’re working on or learn how to knit or crochet from one of the WC Staffers! Some folks even bring other types of crafting to work on. If you don’t have the start-up tools, no worries! We have knitting needles and crochet hooks, yarn and patterns.
Organized and performed by the MU Community, the Vagina Monologues performance is highly provocative, eye-opening, and emotional. The Vagina Monologues are sure to make you laugh, cry, and leave the theater ready to change the world. Proceeds benefit organizations that work to prevent power-based personal violence.
The Women’s Leadership Conference is an event held to coincide with Women’s History Month and is designed to bring female leaders from Mid-Missouri together to discuss the past, present, and future of women’s leadership on a global level. The conference is built upon four pillars: networking, education, empowerment and diversity.
Women’s’ History Month occurs throughout March. It is a time to rediscover our past and look towards our future. Every year, the Women’s Center along with the Women’s History Month Committee comes together to make sure that women’s stories are heard. Special events that month are our Annual Women’s Poetry Night, Women’s & Gender Studies Wednesdays, the Women’s Leadership Conference and so much more.
