Women's Week 2024


Educational Events

Stitch & B!tch Critical Discussion Series
Stitch & B!tch (S&B) is a space for students to engage in critical discussion and analysis as a community while collectively creating stitch-based fiber art such as quilting, embroidery, crochet, knitting, etc.! Each session of S&B is a collaboration with another office on campus, and focuses on a different topic related to systems of oppression and social transformation.
The spirit of S&B is to encourage critical analysis of social issues while engaging in a creative, artistic activitythat helps to diffuse social anxiety, unify the group through a shared project, and serve as an expressive, cathartic outlet. Furthermore, S&B is a way for WRC to engage in a long legacy of feminist praxis of reclaimingstereotypically “feminine” domestic spaces/roles as radical space and time dedicated tocommunity building, political education, and political organizing under the unassuming guise of “women’s work. 
Scholarship Workshops
WRC offers scholarship workshops for students interested in applying for WRC scholarships. In these workshops, we assist students in determining which of our scholarships they may be eligible for, and share tips about requesting letters of recommendation and writing a strong personal statement.
Barbie Series
WRC is also hosting a series of Barbie movie-themed workshops and events in Spring 2024. The series will cover the following topics: friendship, sex positivity & consent, gender & finance, career readiness, and imposter syndrome.
