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. Check back closer to Fall 2024 for a list of our S&B upcoming events!
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.
