Sarah Doyle Center for Women and Gender

Important Update:

The Sarah Doyle Center building will be closed until further notice, in accordance with Brown's measures for community health and safety in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we have transitioned our Women's History Series theme "Radical Roots: Nourishing Feminist Work" to an online blog platform! As always, the Sarah Doyle Center for Women and Gender is here for all students--undergraduates, graduate students, and medical students. We offer resources and support for all of Brown's student populations, including student parents. We hope that you stay connected with us and subscribe to our blog to receive new posts via email (available on the blog's right side menu).

Connect with us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, too!

The SDC offers to all students, staff, and faculty resources around gender and its intersections with other markers of identity. We continue to emphasize our work as being located at the nexus of academic theory and feminist practice (praxis). Crucially, as we have transitioned to remote learning, our student staff and Women Peer Counselors are helping to maintain connections to community at Brown and beyond. 

We are also in the process of coordinating programs for summer and fall 2020 that focus on the importance of gender in moments of global and local disruption. We are working to make our zine collection usable virtually through zines that already have a digital presence online. We would also like for our blog to serve as a platform for our various communities to share their thoughts and their work across locations and generations. If you are someone who has been a part of the Sarah Doyle Center community and are interested in contributing a guest post, please reach out to [email protected].

Additionally, the SDC Administrative staff are available to meet with people remotely by email, phone, or video. We can help students access Brown resources and help them find resources wherever they currently are. Please contact the staff to arrange a time:
