The WRRC’s mission is to promote gender equity and social justice. We provide a place for students and the Davis community to learn about resources and to attend educational programs that focus on gender equity and social justice.
It is a great place to meet friends and get involved with on-campus events and student organizations working to address sexism, cissexism, and all forms of oppression. The WRRC provides opportunities for students to take part in making UC Davis safer and more inclusive for everyone, specifically for people with marginalized gender identities, including, but not limited to: womxn, transgender, nonbinary, and gender expansive individuals.
Why a Womxn’s Center?
The Women’s Resources and Research Center provides opportunities to promote gender equity in the UC Davis community. Although womxn make up the majority of students on college campuses, they still navigate issues of hostile campus climate, sexism, and genderism. The WRRC hopes to achieve our vision – a world in which gender equity is achieved and people of all genders, specifically womxn, transgender, nonbinary and people with marginalized genders – have the opportunities and support to realize their full potential.
The WRRC is a resource for everyone promoting GENDER EQUITY in the UC Davis Community.
Womxn, transgender, nonbinary, and gender expansive individuals need places where they can find support when facing gender bias, gendered violence and the impacts of inequities on self-esteem. It is critical for everyone to have space to study, relax, be inspired, and laugh in the company of folks who believe in their full potential.
There has been much progress toward gender equity, and yet, many of the issues that motivated UC Davis students, staff and faculty to create a supportive space for womxn on campus in the 1970s still persist on campus and in our communities.
