Womxn Warrior Week
Womxn Warrior Week is a weeklong celebration of womxn who are doing great things in their community to advance the status of womxn. It started two years ago as Women Veterans Week, recognizing women and family members who serve in the military community.
However, in light of recent events around the #metoo campaign, we have decided to make this week about all womxn warriors, not just veterans, because sexism and sexual violence is a battleground on many fronts, whether you work in tech, science, education, administration, healthcare, etc.
This year, Womxn Warrior Week starts on Monday, April 23rd and runs until the Womens Center's Take Back the Night rally on Thursday evening.
This week is to celebrate and empower the warrior spirit for the sake of women's advancement in academics and beyond.
