  • The Women's Resource Center (WRC) provides a comfortable and friendly place where students, staff and faculty, both women and men, can seek information on a variety of topics, obtain confidential referrals to appropriate campus and community resources, and discuss issues of concern. The WRC presents programming on issues of gender and sexuality within the Center and also does outreach and provides training to a wide range of student organizations and the larger campus community. Every Wednesday at 11:45am there is the Gender Talk program, a topical conversation about gender issues. We co-sponsor campus-wide events including the Take Back the Night March, Love Your Body Day, and The Vagina Monologues. The WRC has a small library, two student computers, and a lactation room. Our goals include educating the campus on topics that concern women, with a special focus on violence against women and teaching men how to obtain sexual consent; identifying and researching issues that affect UH women; working with the University Commission on Women to provide increased opportunities for women and serve as a liaison to UH administration; and celebrating the achievements of UH women. The WRC also provides free resources such as feminine hygiene products, condoms, Band-Aids and business interview suits through Dress for Success Houston. We also are a friendly hangout where we work to build Cougar community and spirit. All are welcome.
