PERIOD @ CWRU’s mission is to advocate for menstrual care and equality on CWRU’s campus and in the Cleveland community. We are a service group dedicated to donating menstrual products to those in need, normalizing menstruation for all students regardless of gender identity, and affecting legislation by empowering students to raise awareness and create change.

The Feminist Collective at CWRU

The Feminist Collective at Case Western Reserve University attempts to bring awareness to the many political, social, and economic issues women and other oppressed populations face in society today. While many believe that women's rights no longer need to be discussed, the truth is that many women and other groups still face subjugation, oppression, and discrimination. This not only affects women in society but cis-men, LGBTQ+ individuals, people of color, neuro-divergent, differently abled, and all others affected by oppressive sociocultural, political, and economic forces. By unmasking and bringing public awareness to the obstacles we face daily, we will fight to bring justice, equity, equality, and respect to all individuals on this campus.
