The Women's Center offers many programs and events. 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.
Feminist Leadership Academy
The Feminist Leadership Academy (FLA) brings together students looking to grow in their understanding of and personal relationship to feminism to empower them in fostering connections on campus and in the community. FLA will allow for expansive conversations around intersectionality, feminism, growing communities of women and exemplifying these values in daily life. FLA provides historical context about the cultural norms that have limited women's participation in leadership roles. FLA includes conversations on the importance and impact of intersectional feminism and how to continue the work of feminist organizing wherever you go!
Salary Negotiation Workshops
Our Salary Negotiation Workshops are 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 workshops are held each semester.

Take Back the Night is an annual march and rally against sexual violence. Typically, Take Back the Night is held in early April during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The Vagina Monologues
The Vagina Monologues has been 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. The Vagina Monologues will not be performed during the 2020-2021 academic year due to Covid-19.
Women's Giving Circle
The Georgia College Women’s Center and the Georgia College Foundation are excited to establish a Women’s Giving Circle (WGC)! The GC Women’s Giving Circle will amplify the power of collaborative philanthropic efforts to help support areas of need across campus while simultaneously building community and transforming the lives of students. Members contribute an annual gift to the fund and gather to determine where the collective dollars are granted. By motivating and inspiring women as leaders, donors, and advocates, we can transform women’s giving to create greater impact! Learn more here!
