WoCo: A Feminist House, formerly the Wom(y)n’s Concerns House, was founded in 1989 in conjunction with the Women and Gender Studies, formerly Women’s Studies, program. The House desires to call attention to feminist thoughts and ideas and to raise awareness on campus through active discussion and education. In addition to this, we strive to be an environment that is supportive of differences in experiences within gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, and class. Above all, we are a community dedicated to being a safe, open space that operates on the basis of mutual respect and personal growth. The House engenders a framework that we utilize to educate ourselves and the wider Drew community on issues in Women and Gender Studies. We sustain the voice of feminist positive women and men. In conjunction with the Drew University Feminist Union, DUFU, we are devoted to educating ourselves and others about feminism, theory, and goals of equality and eradicating oppression.
