The K. Della Ferguson Womyn’s Resource Center



The Womyn’s Resource Center was established in 1990 in conjunction with the Midlife and Older Women’s Center. The mission of the Womyn’s Resource Center is the empowerment and growth of all women through education and mutual support. The Center addresses the wide range of issues that women of all ages, ethnicities, religious beliefs, and lifestyles face on a daily basis. The Center also addresses issues of social justice that affect not only women but men and children as well.

In previous years, the Womyn’s Resource Center initiated programs in a variety of areas including womyn’s health issues, sex education, holistic medicine, womyn as religious leaders and programming for Womyn’s Herstory Month. We intend to continue the tradition in the 2012-2013 academic year by providing programs dealing with issues including practical life skills for womyn, sexual and domestic violence, women in conflict zones, sexual exploitation and trafficking, reproductive choice, self-image, and gendered socialization. We always welcome new ideas about programming and encourage people to volunteer for our events, programs and activities.
