Building Community
At the Women's Center, we believe that at the core of a feminist community are relationships, resilience, and resistance. Our center seeks to build this community by providing a space for students to connect and build relationships across all identities and experiences, providing opportunities to build knowledge and skills, and supporting students in creating counter-narratives.

Activism is intentionally acting in ways that demand, support, and create social change. As one becomes more aware of societal issues and articulates these struggles, a desire to create change follows. The Women's Center supports students with resources, training and other opportunities as they explore activism, build skills and lead social change on campus and beyond.



Civic Engagement
Through curricular and co-curricular programs, the Women's Center encourages students to connect scholarship from the classroom to real world problems,  to consider alternative frameworks for judgment and action, and to draw meaning from experiences that push them to critique theory from practice and practice from theory.



Join us as we forge ahead creating another 25 years of memorable experiences at Duke University, changing the world, one woman at a time.

Duke Men's Project

The Duke Men's Project aims to create a space of brotherhood fellowship dedicated to interrogating male privilege and patriarchy as it exists in our lives, our campus and our society. Our intention is to rework current narratives of masculinity for a healthier alternative; one that is inclusive, equitable and positive.
