Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you just serve women?
  • Our work is based in Intersectional Feminism and centers marginalized gender identities and we serve everyone here at the WRRC. We love to see those invested in gender equity and learning more about the work we do. You don't have to know everything about feminism or intersectionality or gender equity to use the resources in the WRRC or the support that we have to offer. Feel free to come visit us, see what we have to offer you, and to ask questions! Our hours are Monday-Thursday 9am-5pm and Friday 9am-4pm. 
  • Is there a charge for items or programs you offer?
  • ALLLLLLL of our programs and resources are free to students and the UC Davis community! We pride ourselves on being able to provide resources and programming free of charge for our community members. This includes our monthly and annual programming, our WiSE Mentorship Program, STEM for Girls Youth program, the menstrual supplies offered in our space, food and snacks in our space, testing materials during midterms and finals week. We do ask for donations to attend some of our programs, but all those donations support the planning of that program for the following year! So grab a friend or friends and come hang out with us!!
  • Can you tell me more about the Student Parent Closet? 
  • Sure! The Student Parent Closet is located in the WRRC and has a variety of supplies and resources to support student parents on campus.

  • Are you a medical provider, or can you provide me with medical support?
  • The WRRC is not a medical provider and we are not able to provide medical support. However, we are happy to provide you with resources and referrals to medical providers in and around the Davis area. Additionally, we do provide pregnancy tests and members of the career staff team are certified in sexual education through Planned Parenthood of America and can support with information on birth control options (we just don't provide birth control in our space).
  • What do you mean you offer crisis support? 
  • The WRRC staff team is here to support those who are navigating crisis. We are able to take drop-ins M-F during our open hours. We are here to listen, provide support and offer resource referrals. We know that it can be overwhelming to do research on where to get support for things when someone is navigating something difficult, so we are here to support by being able to know exactly where to refer someone. If we don't know then we can definitely find out for them. Additionally, the WRRC serves as a confidential reporting unit for situations involving sexual violence/harassment and domestic/intimate partner violence. This means, any person who may be navigating or experiencing these types of situations can receive support from any WRRC staff member without needing to file a report. WRRC staff members can provide information/resources about reporting options and emotional/mental/physical health support services. It is important to note that the WRRC is confidential only with regards to the above mentioned topics.
