We are a multicultural campus-based center established in 1972. We offer many services to meet the needs of the diverse cultural and linguistic populations of the university, five colleges and surrounding Hampshire County community.
Our New Name
Starting September 2012, the Everywoman’s Center will change its name to Center for Women and Community (CWC). The new name better reflects the work that EWC currently engages in: serving all genders, the campus, and the larger community. We will have a number of celebratory events throughout the year, starting with an Open House on September 12th. Author and inspirational speaker Valerie Young will speak at the gala and sign copies of her new book “The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women: Why Capable People Suffer from the Imposter Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It.” Throughout the year, there will be lectures, International Women’s Day celebration and other Anniversary events.
To provide innovative and informed education, leadership opportunities, advocacy, and support services, that address the cause and impact of sexism and recognize the multiple oppressions experienced by women. We offer services to people of all genders within the diverse communities of Hampshire County, the Five Colleges and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
CWC is a nationally recognized leader in achieving gender equity by building the capacity of the community to interrupt, address and transcend sexism and its connection to all forms of oppression.
