wł : what women want
25 - 31 OCTOBER
about wł

The goals of Wł at MIT are to facilitate the close collaboration amongst women on campus, successful female student leaders, MIT faculty and administrators, and inspirational speakers. Our visions include: advice-giving from successful speakers and sudent leaders, and providing life coaching and the resources for mentoring relationships between undergraduate women, graduate women, and alumane.

The purpose of Women's Week is to help the MIT community develop an updated notion of what feminism embodies -- we want to show that people from all walks of life with all types of lifestyles can hold and champion the tenets of feminism!

We will be raffling off movie tickets, gift cards to the Cheesecake Factory, iTunes gift cards, tickets to the aquarium/museum of science and many other fun FREEBIES throughout the week!
