Grassroots Feminist Activism: Home

How to find resources related to grassroots feminist activism. Created for the the Feminist Activist Academy in conjunction with the Women's Resources Center.


Welcome! This site has been created to assist you in finding and using library resources for the topics you are researching for the Feminist Activist Academy, an annual activist training for UIUC undergraduate students focusing on understanding feminist theory and practice. The Academy is sponsored by the Women's Resource Center and explores contemporary feminist issues and offers attendees practical skills for engaging in feminist activism.

Our library, one of the largest university libraries in the U.S., can be a bit overwhelming at first, but it is a treasure trove for students and scholars. All of the University of Illinois Library's resources are available to you as you do your research, so explore, have fun, and don't hesitate to ask questions!

For individual help with your research, please contact:

Women's Resource Center

The Women's Resource Center supports and connects students, linking them with faculty, alumnae, staff, community leaders and other students through programs, workshops, mentorship, fun activities and networking events focused on the intersectionality of sexism and other forms of social identity. Student organizations may request meeting or programming space as well as apply for co-sponsorships from WRC for activities that raise awareness of gender/womens issues on campus, and increase the visibility and diversity of women at the University of Illinois. They also offer confidential, supportive counseling for sexual assault/rape or abuse within a relationship and other types of interpersonal abuse.
