Women's Resource Center

WRC Journal, red cover

Students at the WRC also published newsletters, collected independent and popular publications, wrote to the editors of Student Life, and for many years created HerStory scrapbooks and group journals of their activities.

The Women's Resource Center (WRC) was created in January 1976, by the Feminist Coalition of Washington University.

A space was created to serve as a library, a lounge, and a meeting area for individuals interested in women's activities both on and off campus.  Throughout its twenty-seven year history, the WRC was located within the Women's Building, Prince Hall, and Umrath Hall.

The WRC sponsored various activities, including coffee hours with professors, panel discussions, a women's film series, distribution of birth control information, formal lectures, and musical performances on campus. 

Members of different campus groups maintained and staffed the WRC, including the Feminist Coalition, the Women's Programming Board, the Women's Resource Project, and the Women's Resource Center Committee.  The WRC closed in 2003, and its records and library resources are now available at the Washington University Archives.
