Women*s Center

Women*s Center events bring people together to inspire, encourage, and empower them to create change in their lives and communities.  Our programming ranges from simple crafting events to week-long events with visiting speakers.  We also collaborate with campus and community partners to create educational programs during awareness months, International Women's Week, and Women's History Month.

  • Honoring Indigenous Womxn

    Indigenous communities are identified as those that have a historical and cultural claim to territories which pre-date the arrival of Europeans. This event is held on the traditional lands of the Palouse and Nez Perce People, and we pay our respect to elders both past and present. We honor phenomenal womxn that have had to navigate holding on to their native culture and yet step into a much-colonized space.  

  • Harpy*s Magazine

    Harpy*s is a newly created feminist magazine courtesy of Washington State University Women*s Center. We try to focus on the modern matters of feminism, the LGBTQ+ community, and all-around empowerment. For more information please contact

    Harpy*s Magazine presents our first theme Body Image where every single body type is valued. Society creates competition and an unrealistic glorification that does not exist. It is important to recognize the different body types and shapes and we can normalize this with the showcase of different stories and experiences.

    Call for Submissions
    Showcase your work in the inaugural issue of our feminist magazine! We are accepting writing, research, poetry, and art related to the theme 'Body Image'. Submit to by Monday, Oct. 12. 

    The publishing date is Monday, November 9, 2020

  • International Women*s Day

    International Women*s Day

    March 8th, 2021

    What is International Women*s Day?

    International Women's Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women's network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women's Day. Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.

    IWD  is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. IT is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action - whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, IWW has been occurring for well over a century - and continue's to grow from strength to strength. 

    Theme: #EachforEqual

    An equal world is an enabled world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.

    Equality is not a women's issue, it's a business issue. Gender equality is essential for economies and communities to thrive.  A gender equal world can be healthier, wealthier and more harmonious - so what's not great about that? The race is on for the gender equal boardroom, a gender equal government, gender equal media coverage, gender equal workplaces, gender equal sports coverage, more gender equality in health and wealth

  • Take Back the Week/Week Without Violence

    Week Without Violence
