*COVID-19 Update for Fall 2021:
In accordance with safety precautions issued by Santa Clara County and Stanford University, the Centers for Equity Community and Leadership (ECL) are looking forward to a safe and responsible reopening in Fall 2021. We will continue to prioritize safety, community-building, and diversity and equity and are working actively to determine the details of our Fall plans. Stay tuned!
“The struggle against patriarchy and racism must be substantively robust and inextricably intertwined.”
The Women's Community Center exists to facilitate growth and engagement for Stanford students around issues of gender, equity, identity, and justice.
We do this by building community and providing innovative opportunities to explore scholarship, leadership, and activism.
Our approach is inclusive, intersectional, and welcoming of people of any background or level of prior engagement with these issues.
STOP ASIAN HATE.
In order to for us to collectively dismantle white supremacy, patriarchy, and oppression, we must speak out and stand against the violence being inflected on our marginalized communities.
The WCC stands in solidarity with the Asian and Asian American Community.
Please read the statement from the WCC Directors condemning violence against the Asian and Asian American Community in Winter Quarter 2021 as well as resources and information HERE.
BLACK LIVES MATTER.
The nature of intersectional feminist work requires us to stand up and work towards justice and equity with attention to the intersection of oppressed parts of our identities. This cannot be done without full support and solidarity for Black liberation. This requires a focus on dismantling white supremacy, patriarchy, and structural inequalities across the board.
Please read the statement posted by the Firetruck House (WCC and QSR) in Spring 2020 as well as resources and information HERE.
