WELCOME TO THE WOMEN’S CENTER
The NC State Women’s Center is one of four Campus Community Centers (along with the GLBT Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the African American Cultural Center) housed under the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED).
The mission of the Women’s Center is to build and create a community of authentic and engaged allies and leaders to pursue gender equity and social justice; enhancing the campus climate through education, advocacy, support and leadership development.
Forty-seven faculty, staff and students of color departed campus on Friday, November 10, 2017 to embark on NC State’s first Women of Color Retreat. The retreat, an inaugural program of the Women’s Center, moves beyond a diversity and inclusion rhetoric and engages in inclusive practices that claim space and reclaim the stories of experiences of women of color at NC State.read more

The Women’s Center is happy to announce the third film of our Intersectional Film Series. This particular event is a film screening and discussion designed to examine the the complexities involved with being a woman of faith. In our discussion we will work to unpack just a few of the profound intersections of Islam, empowerment, and resistance. We invite all students to come and participate in our film screening and our discussion! We will watch the film The Light in Her Eyes and host a brief discussion after. We will utilize an intersectional approach to deconstruct the complicated and conflicting nature of women, religion, and empowerment.
Join us at the Women’s Center on Tuesday from 12-1 to read Roxane Gay’s latest book Hunger.Our first meeting will be Tuesday January 23rd.
Join the Women’s Center and The Movement Peer Educators to discuss the ways in which Hollywood has romanticized and normalized stalking as an act of love. Participants will watch clips from various films and discuss the ways that filmmakers have dangerously allowed their leading characters to manipulate, pressure, blackmail, lie, and persistently pursue a love interested in order to win their affection.
