Sarah Doyle Women's Center

The Sarah Doyle Women’s Center (SDWC) provides a comfortable yet challenging place for students, faculty, and staff to examine the multitude of issues around gender.

The SDWC offers programs, services, and events for all members of the Brown community, and is a site for research into and exploration of gender issues that extend into and beyond the classroom.
