The Women's Studies and Resource Center provides opportunities to students, faculty, staff, and community members to experience the diverse facets of women's lives, hopes, and concerns. The WSRC provides research support, programming, an academic minor, a post-baccalaureate certificate, academic scholarships, and community engagement to promote gender equality.
On July 9, 2015, the WSRC donated proceeds from the 2015 Vagina Monologues to the V-day Organization (not pictured), The Rape Crisis Center of Coastal Horizons Center, and The Carousel Center for Abused Children.
The first “I am a Feminist” Poster Series was proudly hosted by the Women’s Studies Student Association. The poster series is an activist movement meant to combat the negative connotations associated with the word “feminist” and make it more familiar and relatable to audiences through visual evidence. Every school day for the month of November, posters of different UNCW students, faculty and staff went up on bulletin boards in a variety of buildings around campus. See slide show below:
