Women for Women seeks to promote education, service, and leadership throughout the NMU campus and the community at large. The organization works together to introduce others to issues that include, but are not limited to, health, sexuality, equality, empowerment, and civil rights. Originally founded as a grassroots organization dedicated to the promotion of a female sisterhood, Women for Women has expanded its efforts to include projects that raise awareness of societal concerns throughout the world.
For over ten years, Women for Women has made quite a name for itself on campus, having hosted several service projects that have given a lot back to the NMU and Marquette community. Originally started as a way to unite the all-female houses on campus, Women for Women is now open to anyone who is interested in helping to put together projects that have a positive impact on women in the area.
Some of the projects Women for Women has proudly hosted in the past years include:
- LeadHERship Women's Conference
- Do You Have 8 Inches, a hair drive benefiting Children with Hair Loss
- Hear Us Roar, a readers theater by sexual assault survivors
- Self-Acceptance Week, a week-long series of programs that encouraged people to embrace their personal identities
Women for Women was awarded the 2015-2016 Program of the Year for LeadHERship and the 2009-2010 Diversity Program of the Year for Self-Acceptance Week.
