Student Activism.  Education.  Community.

The Women & Gender Resource Action Center (WGRAC) is a place of advocacy, support, and welcome for all members of the Trinity community. Through educational, social, and cultural programming, it seeks to promote women’s self-determination and empowerment; awareness of women’s rights and issues; redress of gender inequities; understanding among diverse students and of the intersectional experiences of different economic classes, sexes, races, nationalities and ethnicities, ages, religions, genders, sexual orientations, and gender identities; promotion of anti-racism, anti-classism, and body positivity; the bridging of theory into practice and action; and, the creation of a campus environment conducive to respectful interaction between people of all genders and backgrounds.

You don’t need to be woman-identified to go to WGRAC! We are a place of CHANGE – creating positive social change on campus. We are a place of SAFETY – a safe space for students seeking short-term counseling, referrals, or a place to hang out and schmooze. We are a place of FUN – a space to bring your creativity and energy. We are a place of INCLUSIVENESS – everyone is welcome!

The WGRAC Lounge and Library is a comfortable place to hang out and study, meet, watch TV or DVDs, read ‘zines, and browse through the WGRAC collection of literature and non-fiction. WGRAC’s Library also contains our Feminist Archives with journals and magazines dating back to the 1960s, and a filing cabinet chock full of articles and papers related to gender, women, and sexuality.

Come and check us out! We’re located on the second floor of Mather Hall, behind the Washington Room
