of Women Leaders is rewriting the definition of feminism.
As a student-founded, student-run non-profit organization,
OWL provides a network of support for women at Princeton.
Our officers, and the more than 800 men and women who have
become a part of OWL since its founding in 2000, are dedicated
to embracing the diversity, transforming the perceptions,
and challenging the conventions of women's roles on our campus,
in our communities, and around the world.
OWL holds monthly
discussion meetings on Monday nights to raise issues of the
day and provide a place for dialogue and questions. The topics
and times may vary, but the discussion is always lively and
snacks are always provided, so be sure to check the homepage
In addition to
our Monday meetings, OWL is involved in a number of community
service initiatives in the Princeton area, from raising money
for WomynSpace, a local women’s shelter, to founding
Girls’ Empowerment, our student-run mentoring program
for students at John Witherspoon Middle School.
OWL hosts numerous
other events throughout the year, including movie showings,
speaker events, and panels. Past speakers include former president
of NOW Patricia Ireland, CEO of Oxygen Media Geraldine Laybourne,
author Joyce Carol Oates and Travelocity CEO Michelle Peluso,
to name a few. Our speaker series culminates in OWL’s
annual spring conference, which has covered such topics as
Women In the Nation’s Service and Women’s Health.
OWL seeks to create
a dialogue about women’s roles both on and off campus
while providing a place for women to come together and share
their concerns and ambitions. OWL is a support group, a place
for discussion, and a liaison between Princeton women, the
University community, and the world at large to raise awareness
to bring about change to improve the lives of all women.
We hope to see
you at some of our events and look forward to welcoming you
to OWL! For questions email Libby Shutkin eshutkin@Princeton.edu
