During “Brunch with Finance Barbie,” participants discussed “how gender identity often shapes the ways in which we experience financial matters, and how women’s work and abilities regarding finances, household labor, and emotional labor in the workplace are often undervalued or unrecognized.” 

The event page for “Stitch & B!tch” advertised: “Stitch & B!tch is a space for students to engage in critical discussion and analysis as a community while collectively creating stitch-based fiber art such as quilting, embroidery, crochet, knitting, etc.! Join the Women’s Resource Center and the Black Cultural Center to engage in a critical discussion about White feminism and work on a crochet project.” 

Hip and Humble, the sponsors of Women’s Week at the school, is a company focused on “women’s fashion, home accessories, and fun, colorful gifts.”
