    For the most up-to-date information on what we have to available, visit our resource website.

    Menstrual and Sexual Health

    We provide a variety of menstrual and sexual health supplies, including options appropriate for allergies and sensitivities. Our staff is happy to work with you to determine which supplies meet your specific needs and to answer any questions, but we also have take-home guides and brochures available if you prefer. 

    Our office in Anderson 320 is fully stocked with all the supplies we currently have. We can give you small paper bags to package your supplies if you'd like to be more discreet. If you need something when our office is closed, there are limited supplies available:

    1. in the drawers outside our office
    2. from one of our bins in Anderson 319 (SALD), West Hall Basement (Commuter Lounge), and Bush Library Basement (CASA)
    3. with an online order for the Food Resource Center

    Sexual Violence Prevention

    We work toward a world that is free of sexual violence. We have resources to help you identify unwanted sexual behaviors, understand your rights as a survivor, and access support as you heal from trauma. We also have resources to help secondary survivors (like partners, family, and friends) learn how to best support a loved one who has been assaulted. Although we are not a confidential campus resource, our staff is here to listen and support you whether you've been a victim of sexual violence or know someone who has been victimized. 

    We believe everyone deserves to feel safe. If you've been sexually assaulted, get help now.

    If you are unsafe or in crisis and need immediate assistance, please contact Hamline Public Safety at 651-5223-2100, Counseling and Health Services at 651-523-2204, or call 911. There also are several 24-hour crisis lines listed below.

    Being educated about issues related to sexual violence, such as sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and rape culture, is crucial to preventing violence and responding more effectively when it occurs. Sexual violence prevention is a shared responsibility, and we encourage every member of the Hamline community to join us in this important work. Here are some ways to get involved:

    Academic and Community Engagement

    We promote learning about feminist issues from intentionally intersectional and socially just perspectives. We have a library of books, comics, magazines, and zines on a range of feminist topics including:

    advocacy & organizing body image/acceptance bystander intervention career development dating & sexual violence
    disability rights eating disorders feminist art/ists feminist theories  gender equity
    gender identity/expression healthy relationships LGBTQIA+ rights menstrual health mental health & wellbeing
    mentorship & leadership period poverty pregnancy & birthing race & ethnicity reproductive justice
    self care & healing sexual health sexuality/expression women's history women's rights

    We believe in the power of co-curricular education. We encourage students to connect their academic interests and career goals to the work we do in the WRC. Some opportunities include:

    We also encourage faculty and staff to include us in their course planning and professional development. Send us an email at wrc@hamline.edu if you're interested in learning more about how we can support you.

    Recommended Syllabus Language

    The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) offers a safe, supportive space for the Hamline community to work toward gender equity through programming, academic and community engagement, and direct resources. Because financial inequality disproportionately affects women, especially women of color, disabled women, and members of the LGBTQIA+ community, meeting basic needs for health and wellbeing is often difficult. The WRC provides free menstrual (tampons, pads, menstrual cups) and sexual (condoms, lubes, pregnancy tests) health supplies to Hamline students. Students of all gender identities and expressions are welcome to access these resources. 

    Visit the WRC in Anderson 320, or email staff at wrc@hamline.edu. More information is available on the Hamline web page at hamline.edu/womens-resource-center, WRC resource site at tinyrul.com/huwrc, and Instagram @HUWomensResourceCenter.
