Educating for Life and Leadership

The UW Alene Moris Women’s Center is a catalyst for change. We disrupt cycles of oppression and break down gender-based barriers through transformational education programs, leadership development, and advocacy for girls, women, and people of all gender identities. We believe women’s rights are human rights. Programs and services are open to all students, staff, faculty and community members.

We provide access to resources and opportunities that promote gender equity and amplify historically marginalized voices in addressing the issues that impact them and their communities.
