About Us

The Women’s Building is a women-led community space that advocates self-determination, gender equality and social justice.

aboutThe world continues to be a treacherous place for women and girls. Even here in the Bay Area, women have to fight against physical, economic, political and professional barriers, assaults, and forms of discrimination. Since 1971, we have represented and been guided by the belief that all women and girls have the right to safe, joyous and creative lives. Embodying that belief, The Women’s Building is a safe and welcoming place that facilitates the wellbeing of women, girls and families.
