If we want the world to be more peaceful and balanced, we must be more peaceful and balanced.
To that end, we are planning a retreat for a WISE R&R.

We highlight women's accomplishments in an all day festival that features women's art, muic, poetry, speakers, workshops and much more!

The WISE Legacy Scholarshop
Beginning in the Fall of 2009, WISE sponsored the WISE Legacy Scholarship, using money earned from the production of the Vagina Monologues. The $700.00 scholarship is awarded to a student in good standing at JSU for their committment to better the lives of women.
The Clothesline Project
Beginning in the Fall of 2005, WISE brought awareness of how domestic violence and sexual assault impact women in our area by sponsoring the Clothesline Project.
The Clothesline Project is a program started in Cape Cod, MA, in 1990. The purpose is to break the silence on the issue of violence against women. Women affected by violence express their emotions by decorating a t-shirt. This t-shirt is then hung on a clothesline in the front of TMB at JSU. The viewing is a testimony to the problem of violence against women in our area. In the first year, there were over 200 t-shirts blowing in the wind along Hwy 21. Each year we add to the collection and we now total close to 500 shirts. We will continue to air our dirty laundy in public UNTIL THE VIOLENCE STOPS!
