WoCo: A Feminist House.
The WoCo (Women’s Concerns) House is an intentional community, housed in Eberhart Hall. It is committed to educating its members and the community about issues related to women and gender.
Women’s Concerns House celebrated 25 years of educating on feminism and gender issues in 2014!
The WoCo House was founded in 1989 in conjunction with the Women’s Studies Program. We are a community of women and men dedicated to being a women-friendly and feminist-positive place on campus, appreciating the multiplicity of experiences including such areas as gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, and class. The House is an environment committed to promoting awareness through active discussion and education, as well as by putting theories into practice. The House is a safe, open space that operates on the basis of mutual respect and personal growth.
The WoCo House engenders a framework that we utilize to educate ourselves and the wider Drew community on women’s issues. We sustain the voice of feminist-positive women and men. We are devoted to educating ourselves and others about feminism, theory, and goals of eradicating oppression, which are the areas explored in the Women’s Studies Program. Through sponsoring programs through the House itself and supporting non-House programs pertaining to our goals, we join in the University’s commitment to education.
The WoCo House accepts applicants each spring. For more information, contact the House Assistant, Kelly Johnson. A copy of the House application is available through the House Assistant.
