Welcome!

Boston College has changed quite a bit since its first undergraduate school for women (School of Nursing) was opened in 1947 or when BC was made fully coeducational in 1970. Since its inception, the Women’s Resource Center has worked to support the campus in issues of gender equality and well-being.

This archive is meant to be a visual testament to the work of the WRC staff members and directors throughout the years as well as the efforts of the Women’s Studies Department and the countless individuals who have been dedicated to the education of the whole person.

Please use this as resource for continued growth. It only takes a few clicks to see how radically different this school (and the world) was just a few decades ago. The ground we’ve gained was the result of hard work and resilient, innovative individuals. There is still a long way to go. Let us use the past as a springboard into the future and continue to document progress at Boston College.

**Note: the materials on this site have been included for their historical relevance, regardless of the views expressed.
