Biographical/Historical Note

The Women's Resource Center (WRC) opened at 24 College Street in the fall of 1980. Initially started by students as a gathering place for women, and a center for the study of women's issues, it was run by the Bowdoin Women's Association, a student organization. In 1983, at the urging of the Bowdoin Women's Association, a College staff person was hired to direct the center. The WRC has continued to grow, coordinating with the Women's Studies Program, and providing information and programming that addresses gender issues.
