While the group was created with men in mind, the answer is no. We encourage all genders
to participate in our programming to encourage everyone to work together in creating
a safer and more equal campus climate.
It can feel awkward and uncomfortable to enter the Center for Women and Gender Equity.
Most men have that reaction and there’s good reason for it. In the United States,
men grow up in a culture built for men, by men. If you think about your favorite space,
the parts that make you feel comfortable are most likely “male” things if you are
a cis-gender male. We continue to be taught that certain spaces and things are created
But, what about spaces for women? Aside from clothing stores, it can be hard to come
up with spaces designed specifically with women in mind. The Center for Women and
Gender Equity is space designed to be supportive and comfortable for women. A place
that puts the needs of women first. As a man, it may be uncomfortable to come into
our space at first but give it a try! We know you will have a good experience and
learn a lot about yourself.
The Masculinity Project is not a club. The Center for Women and Gender Equity creates
programming around masculinity and hosts events and workshops. If you are part of
a student organization or a faculty member interested in programming, please fill
out the program request form. The office also hosts events on campus that cover the
topic of masculinity.
