Created in 1990, the Georgetown University Women's Center is a place where women can access information and services, support each other, share ideas, victories and challenges, and work together in a safe, inclusive environment. In an oppressive world, this space was intended to welcome and encourage women's perspectives and opinions, and to serve the needs of students, staff, and faculty at Georgetown.

The main purpose of the Women's Center is to fight sexual discrimination, to empower women, to include and provide services to women of all colors, positions, backgrounds, cultures and orientations, and to focus on women's health concerns. The Center works toward achieving this goal by advocating for social justice and change, the ending of oppression, and the support of women's individual growth and development.
