Happy Anniversary to the Women’s Resource Center

Carey C. Shuart Women's Archive and Research Collection, In the News

As the Daily Cougar reported yesterday, this spring will mark the 10-year anniversary of the Women’s Resource Center here on the University of Houston campus.

As we mentioned previously, the Women’s Resource Center was founded a decade ago in part based on recommendations from the University Commission on Women.  Whether sponsoring the “Take Back the Night” march, hosting “Gender Talk,” or producing the annual “Vagina Monologues,” the staff of the Women’s Resource Center works tirelessly to provide education and resources as part of their mission “to advocate, educate, and provide support services for the advancement of gender equity on campus.”

We would like to issue a hearty congratulations to the WRC as they celebrate a decade of success and growth and look forward to the next ten years.  We would also like to remind the community at large that we are very pleased to make available for study the Women’s Resource Center Records here at the University of Houston Special Collections.  As part of the Carey C. Shuart Women’s Archive and Research Collection, the UH Women’s Resource Center Records are joined alongside an always expanding number of collections ready for study.  We invite you to join us in celebration and study at your earliest convenience and be sure to visit the Women’s Resource Center website for more information regarding ongoing and upcoming events hosted by the WRC.
