Why a Collective?


The Columbus Women's Collective realizes that as minorities (often in more ways than one) we need to be creating more inclusive, rather than exclusive space. With these goals in mind we will focus on providing a more open, nurturing space where the realization of the value of diversity is key. Moving away from paternalistic structures that bind women to genderized roles, we will focus on creation of the individual being rather than emulation of the accepted social norms.

We realize that the power of motivated and bonded women is intense and by leaving behind individual interest, The Columbus Women's Collective is seeking to provide a space where women can directly contribute and jointly gain from the success of our community's growth.
