Celebrating 20 years of leadership, resource sharing, events and advocacy

The Women's Center and Womens Studies program partnership at Wright State

Due to the recommendations of the Task Force on the Status of Women in the Academy and the work of many administrators and allies, the Women’s Center opens in 1993. Mary Beth Pringle, Ph.D., chair of the task force and interim director of the Women’s Center, welcomes the crowd.

Since 1993, the Wright State University Women’s Center has worked to serve women on campus and in the surrounding area through facilitating connections, providing resources and advocating for equitable experiences and opportunities for all people. The Center actively seeks to create an environment in which women are supported, encouraged and less isolated than what has been documented historically.

Women’s Studies (WMS) is an interdisciplinary program that places women in all their diversity at the center of inquiry and examines how gender influences our personal identities, cultural and artistic expressions, social arrangements, political and economic systems and even our ways of knowing and understanding the world. The Bachelor of Arts program in Women’s Studies is organized around three major areas of inquiry: feminist thought, women in multicultural perspective, and women in international perspective.

Join us in celebrating 20 years of partnership between the Women’s Center and the Women’s Studies Program Friday, March 8, 2–4 p.m. in the Millett Hall Atrium.
