GIRLS ROCK DENVER will be the auction beneficiary for the 2019 SWS Winter Meeting. This organization works to empower girls and gender expansive youth through music education, creation, performance and community, working to put instruments in their hands to unveil what they already possess in their feet, fingertips, vocal cords, hearts and minds.

Here’s a quick guide to how to tweet during the SWS Winter meeting:
1. Follow @socwomen on Twitter
2. Find other SWSers to follow on Twitter (and add yourself if you’re not listed): (capitalizations matter with this link, but not with Twitter hashtags or @’s).
3. During the conference, use the hashtag #SWS2019 so that others following the tags can see your tweets. You can use other tags to bring attention to different issues.
4. Any feminist sociology-related tweets about sessions, events, etc. should include @socwomen. @Socwomen will do their best to retweet these during the conference.

The submissions deadline for the 2019 SWS Winter Meeting is NOW CLOSED.

An Added Benefit for 2019
Hosted Dinners
Friday, February 8 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm 

This year, in addition to other hosted dinners that can still form, SWS is sponsoring 5 hosted dinners to offer an affordable dinner option outside of the hotel for non-student attendees ($20 per person), and to cover the costs of the first 50 students who pre-register and choose this option. We do welcome the development of hosted dinners beyond the SWS sponsored hosted dinners since we realize that there is not enough room for all to partake and there are likely some smaller hosted dinner groups that may want to form. Priority will be given based on the order in which we receive your registration. Students who sign up for a hosted dinner and who do not show up will have $20 deducted from their cost share check.
Childcare in Denver 
We will be offering childcare on Friday, February 8 and Saturday, February 9 between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. To secure this service, you must sign up and pay the $50 refundable deposit within the pre-registration form. You must do this by January 25, 2019 at 11:59 pm EDT.  We have contracted with ABC Nannies. There will be a space for you to put any information you would like to share about your children as well as the number of children and ages of children who will be using this service. We will refund the deposit after the Winter Meeting. Please pre-register if you are going to be utilizing this service as we cannot guarantee availability if you register on-site and indicate your childcare needs at that time.
SWS Cost Share:
Cost Share Policy: You must stay in the Winter Meeting hotel in order to apply for the cost share.
Looking forward to seeing you in Denver!
