The Women’s Building’s primary focus is on issues affecting women and girls. We provide immediate support and everyday solutions through social services programs, and improve the world over time through our long-term advocacy campaigns.

Since 1971, The Women’s Building has advocated and taken action on many social justice issues, including issues affecting women and girls, anti-homophobia, and pro-diversity.
