Women's Well-Being Initiative

Do you want to make a difference in your community?

We engage faculty, staff, and students in campus-community partnerships that promote the well-being of women and girls in the Midlands, and enhance the recognition of the full diversity of women's experiences across race, class, age, ethnicity, ability, and other dimensions of difference.


Our goals can be encapsulated within three basis principles: 

  • Critique public and institutional policies to ensure support for women and girls as they pursue their full potential and equality.
  • Challenge disparities relating to the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality and other dimensions of inequality that threaten the well-being of women and girls.
  • Create change through research and activism projects that empower and enrich women and girls, communities, and the Women's and Gender Studies teaching mission.
