Women's Center Programs
The Women's Center offers many programs and services. All of our events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
Women on Wednesday
• Women on Wednesdays are held on Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the Women's Center. For specific dates please see our Calendar.
• Topics for Women on Wednesday range from women's health to financial planning to personal safety. The sessions have varied formats which include discussion, roundtable, lecture or workshop.
• Attendees are always welcome to bring their own lunch.
• The Clothesline Project is held during October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness month.
• The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts with graphic messages and illustrations that have been designed by women survivors of violence, or by their friends or families. The Clothesline may also contain shirts made to honor women who have died as a result of violence. The purpose of this project is to raise awareness of the impact of violence, to celebrate a woman's strength to survive, and to provide another avenue for her to courageously break the silence.
Take Back the Night

The Vagina Monologues
• The Vagina Monologues continues to be performed on GC's campus by faculty, staff and students. The Vagina Monologues honors female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed by The New York Times as "funny" and "poignant" and by the Daily News as "intelligent" and "courageous," The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway by Eve Ensler, dives into the humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women's experiences.
Women's Leadership Council
• The WC Lead Team (WCLT) is comprised of students who wish to fill volunteer leadership positions within the Women's Center. These students will form the "staff" of the WC in addition to the coordinator. Students will be expected to attend the Fall Retreat as well as participate in weekly staff meetings and staffing the center for 8-10 hours per week (staff meetings count as staff hours). Students will also be expected to attend a minimum of 3 WRC events per semester. Students will be required to communicate via evaluation form at the end of the semester which events they attended.
