Council for Women of F&M

Reflecting the Needs and Aspirations of F&M Women

Council for Women of F&M logo

The Council for Women of Franklin & Marshall College (CFW) was established in 2011 by Elizabeth Clark Mackey ’75 after the successful celebration of 40 years of co-education in 2009. The Council continues to reflect the needs and aspirations of women of the F&M community by fostering the personal and professional development of Franklin & Marshall women at all life stages, while strengthening their connection to each other and engaging them as active participants in the College community.

Since 2011, the CFW has spearheaded numerous programs, including:

    • The  Annual Senior Student Leadership Luncheon
    • Negotiation Workshop designed for women
    • Bringing the One Love Foundation to campus for a Common Hour
    • Workshops featuring training focused on ending relationship violence for students
    • On-campus programming at True Blue Weekend and regional gatherings where participants discuss the issues of the day.
