The Western Illinois University Women’s Center supports a welcoming and gender-inclusive campus community. Student development is at the core of our work. We advocate for gender equity through examinations of feminisims, sexism, patriarchy, and misogyny. We lead the campus community in explorations of how gender is a social construction that influences power dynamics, and intersects with all other identities, such as, but not limited to: ability, age, citizenship status, ethnicity, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic class. We promote opportunities to celebrate women, collaborate in programming and outreach, and seek unity and understanding.
