The Women's Center offers many programs and services. All of our events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
Clothesline Project is the Signature Program offered by the Women’s Center. The Clothesline Project is held during October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness month. The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts with graphic messages and illustrations that have been designed by women survivors of violence, or by their friends or families. The Clothesline may also contain shirts made to honor women who have died as a result of violence. The purpose of this project is to raise awareness of the impact of violence, to celebrate a woman's strength to survive, and to provide another avenue for her to courageously break the silence. We invite all members of the University Community to make shirts. During CP shirts and art materials are provided during open t-shirt making sessions. Made or unmade shirts can be donated at any point during the year.
The Vagina Monologues
The Vagina Monologues continues to be performed on GC's campus by faculty, staff, and students. The Vagina Monologues honors female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed by The New York Times as "funny" and "poignant" and by the Daily News as "intelligent" and "courageous," The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway by Eve Ensler, dives into the humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women's experiences. Auditions typically occur in mid-November and the performance occurs in mid-February around Valentine’s Day. There are numerous ways to be involved!
AAUW’s Start Smart program is designed to empower women with the skills and confidence to successfully negotiate their salary and benefits packages. By learning strategies and practicing effective language, participants gain valuable skills they can use throughout their lives — well beyond their next negotiation. Several Start Smart sessions are held each semester.
