Who We Are

Fostering a campus climate that promotes equity and enriches the lives of all members of the University community

Welcome to the Northwestern Women’s Center.

We are committed to gender equality and inclusion at Northwestern University. Our center serves as a space for support, community, advocacy, and affirmation for women and other people who may be navigating marginalization on campus and in society.

The Women’s Center’s Covid-19 Response and Resources

In times like this, the Women's Center keeps our mission to advance gender equity and to support women, trans, and non-binary people at Northwestern at heart, even as we adjust and reimagine the work ahead. We are here but we also understand that the COVID-19 pandemic will likely magnify and exacerbate structural inequities and will affect marginalized communities differently. In response to the social, economic, and medical global crisis due to COVID-19, we have compiled a comprehensive list of resources to support those in need, even while many are away from campus.

from The Daily Northwestern

"Brown said the idea of mutual aid is 'inherently feminist,' and the idea that someone is not doing well because they are undeserving is patriarchal, and denies the existence of systemic racism and of gender oppression."
