 Our Mission

wrc-logoFounded in 1976, the Women's Resource Center is passionately dedicated to improving the lives of women and people of all genders in our community through education and support services. WRC staff and volunteers embrace an intersectional feminist model: empowering people of all genders to actively work against oppression, sexism, hate, and inequality in all areas of our lives. Join us!



The Center houses a feminist library, provides a safe space for students to relax and study, and serves as a resource on gender, social, and political issues for all students, faculty, staff and community members. The WRC is committed to providing resources, information and training on sexual and domestic violence, rape culture, eating concerns, reproductive options and justice, feminism and more! 

Throughout the year the Women's Resource Center offers services pertaining to safety, health, creativity, social justice, and coalition building. These five program areas form a dynamic model of service and action that changes from year to year according to the energy and focus of Center staff and volunteers.


Visit us in Stevenson Union Basement Room 102!

We provide a safe space for the SOU community to come and relax, study or find community. We provide free coffee, tea, condoms, tampons & pads. We also host a large feminist library that is free to use! We hope to see you soon!
