Come closer and you will see feminism is for everybody."

The Women's Resource Center is a place of advocacy, support and safety for all members of the Bucknell University campus community. We seek to foster a campus community in which women and men live and work in a climate of mutual respect, understanding and equality. We support the University's mission to develop students who are productive citizens with a sense of justice, self-awareness, compassion and a respect for our commonality as people.

The Women's Resource Center actively engages in an intersectional feminist model of empowerment to:

  1. promote women's rights and self-determination
  2. redress inequities, both historic and contemporary, based on sex, gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation and
  3. celebrate the achievements and highlight the struggles of women the world over.

What We Do

We recognize that inequities faced by women are played out through other forms of oppression related to race and ethnicity, disability, religion, nationality, and economic class. Our educational, social, and cultural programs, as well as leadership opportunities, address all of these sources of disempowerment.
