About the Women's Resource Center
The WRC was founded in 1973 by a group of women who wanted to put the ideas of the Women's Liberation Movement into practice on UNO's campus. Today, the WRC continues to educate people at UNO and in the community on issues impacting women. They have sponsored multiple rallies, speakers, voter registration drives and other awareness-raising events over the years. The center has established a secure environment and forum where students can address serious problems that are often considered taboo.
