Our Fall 2018 events calendar is complete! You may have seen it posted around campus already on office doors.
In addition to the special events below, our regular “Stitch & Bitch” sessions–a time for solidarity and conversation, coffee and snacks while you mend, patch, sew, knit, crochet–are held in the WMST Office, Peck Hall 3407. Fall 2018 dates are as follows:

We also run small-scale mentoring opportunities for students to chat over free coffee, tea, and snacks with cool women from the community. For details on this semester’s Cool Women, visit our coffee with cool women (CWCW) page or look below. These events always meet in the Women’s Studies office in PH 3407 and feature free coffee, tea, and snacks!
