    PWC 40th Anniversary

    We invite you to join us as we celebrate 40 years of service and advocacy at the Penn Women's Center!


40 Days of Giving

Friday, April 4th-Friday May 16th | Penn Women's Center
To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Penn Women's Center, we have launched 40 Days of Giving, a campaign supporting the families of Women Against Abuse (WAA). WAA is Philadelphia's leading domestic violence advocate and service provider and is one of the largest domestic violence agencies in the country. Since 1977, WAA has operated Philadelphia's only safe haven for victims of domestic violence. There are three ways you can support 40 Days of Giving:

1. Drop off NEW donation items from WAA's wishlist below at PWC
2. Bring checks made payable to Women Against Abuse to the PWC
3. Help us spread the word about 40 Days of Giving through your newsletters, listservs and social media sites.    

Visit our 40th Anniversary page for a list of wishlist items or contact Brittany Harris at bhar@upenn.edu.

Penn Women's Center Presents: Voices of Change       

In honor of our 40th anniversary, the Penn Women's Center is proud to present Voices of Change, a video series featuring a diverse range of women leaders and activists. These brief interviews with students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community leaders capture some of the history of our center, and provide unique snapshots of women's experiences at Penn over the past 40 years.

We hope these videos will inspire you to join us in our celebrations, and contemplate the role you play in supporting women at Penn. Stay tuned to our YouTube page as we roll out new videos throughout this anniversary year, and please contact us if you too have a story to share! Email: Jessica Mertz at jmertz@upenn.edu.
