Biographical / Historical
In the early 1970s, a group of women in Iowa City (named the Women's Liberation Front) organized to discuss and assess women's issues. After several years, The Women's Center was officially housed on campus after the group petitioned for a permanent space and purpose at The University of Iowa. In 1974, the Women's Center formally became known as the Women's Resource and Action Center (WRAC). Since its inception, the Women's Resource and Action Center has broadened its work beyond women's issues to other marginalized communities throughout the greater Iowa City area and The University of Iowa campus.
