Support WRAC with a tax-deductible donation through the UI Foundation

WRAC provides groups, facilitator training, speaker events, individual counseling, community programming, IWIS, and other services with a small budget and the work of many volunteers. Each gift to WRAC is matched many times over by the work of student and community volunteers. All donations, big or small, are appreciated! Donations are tax-deductible.

Donations to the Women's Resource and Action Center Fund support current services and programs including Iowa N.E.W. Leadership. Donations to the Women's Resource and Action Center Endowment Fund help secure the financial future of the Center.

Support & Discussion Groups

The Women’s Resource and Action Center (WRAC) at The University of Iowa is a diverse community dedicated to fostering women’s individual empowerment and systemic solutions to all forms of oppression. The Center leads and collaborates on projects that serve UI students, staff, faculty, and the greater community. Call 319-756-3456 for more information.

Much of the liveliness and community of WRAC comes from our support, discussion, and enrichment groups. All groups are led by trained facilitators, most of whom are student and community volunteers with interests and skills they want to share.
Group participation is free unless otherwise stated (such as for purchase of supplies needed for group activities), though we do request participants’ help to defray WRAC’s costs with donations of $10 for the total duration of each group, if they can.

Spring Groups

 

How Life Plays Out

This group will allow you to explore your identity, feelings, and experiences through the use of art and play activities to discover, develop, and express yourself.

 

Feminist Readers & Writers

An open group for feminist readers and writers.
We will choose three feminist books (as a group) to read and discuss throughout the semester.  We’ll also read and discuss group members’ original feminist writing (for those who wish to share their own creative work).
Come with ideas of feminist books you’d like to read this semester.
All generations and genders are welcome.

 

Finding Acceptance

This group will discuss strategies on how to create a positive body image, improve self-esteem, and become more empowered by recognizing our strengths.

 

An Exploration in Positive DIY: Female Sexual Expression

This group aims to promote positive female sexual expression in a society that upholds patriarchal standards. This is a peer-based discussion group that provides an open dialogue about various topics including the achievement of sexual satisfaction, communication with intimate partners, and sexual identity.
