Recurring Event Series & WCC Initiatives
Clothes have no gender, so clothing swaps shouldn’t either! At our Gender Inclusive Clothing & Stuff Swap, we don’t sort men’s/women’s clothes. They’re just pants or shirts or shoes because anyone wear what they’re comfortable in. We invite you to find the clothes that are fun and true to you! And it’s not just clothing; the swap also has lots of STUFF: books, household items, school supplies and more. Folks can donate or take whatever they need!
Fearless Leadership Institute
The Fearless Leadership Institute (FLI) is an academic, professional and personal development initiative supporting collegiate women’s success. Weekly Interest Groups are held on Mondays. Please contact Ms. Thaїs Bass-Moore or Dr. Tiffany T. Lewis at email@example.com.
Feminist’s Day of Action
This event is dedicated to empowering young activists to be leaders of feminist activism. Feminist Day of Action is organized for feminists by feminists, and at the same time, provides a forum for raising general awareness around gender, sexual, and racial equality. Each year, in observance of Feminist Day of Action, we bring a feminist speaker to campus for a luncheon and Q&A. Past speakers include: Aaliya Zaveri, Mia McKenzie (Black Girl Dangerous), Lindy West, Andrea Pino, Cristina Tzintzún, and Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. Feminist Day of Action is often held in October. Find the date of the next Feminist’s Day of Action on the WCC Calendar.
