The Marshall University’s Women’s Center serves to foster the personal growth and development of women as independent, confident, and healthy individuals. We seek to expand understanding within the University community of personal, political and social issues of concern and interest to women. The Women Center is committed to being a multicultural affirming resource through which women of varying race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, ability, and chronological age are encouraged to seek out our services and participate in our programs and event. We strive to be a place for all men and women to gather and explore and celebrate the richness and diversity of life. The center provides information, educational programming, training, referrals, victim advocacy, and services to facilitate education on issues related to feminism, women, men, and gender. The center organizes events of interest to women and men such as discussion groups, speaker series, workshops, festivals, and films. The center also maintains a resource library with information on sexual assault, stalking, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual harassment, women’s health, body image, eating disorders, and date rape drugs.
