Student Groups and Library Resources related to Gender, Women's, and Sexuality Studies can be helpful for students interested in research, activism, or otherwise engaging with the GWSS curriculum.

Feminist Action Coalition - The Feminist Action Coalition (FAC) is Grinnell's student-run feminist organization. We are devoted to advocating on behalf of Grinnell's women, fighting oppression in all its forms, and having awesome feminist fun. In addition to weekly discussions about feminist issues, FAC organizes a number of popular events on campus, including Love Your Body Week, and Take Back the Night Week.

Stonewall Resource Center - The Stonewall Resource Center exists as a confidential safe space to serve the campus' Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning community and their Allies. Our primary focus is to provide resources and information about LGBT and Queer issues and to facilitate educational programming and activities on campus. The Stonewall Resource Center is also a meeting space and resource for numerous LGBT and Queer related student organizations on campus.

Stonewall Resource Center Library - The Stonewall Resource Center Library contains a collection of hundreds of books, films, and TV series, in addition to subscriptions to many LGBT and Queer magazines and publications. The SRC Library is both an academic and personal resource for all students on campus, and materials can be checked out whenever an SRC monitor is present.

Grinnell Advocates - Grinnell Advocates is a staff supervised, student organization that aims to create greater awareness about issues surrounding sexual assault and dating violence on campus. This group provides sensitive, educational programming about issues related to dating violence, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. The Advocates also act as an immediate resource for victims through the Domestic Violence Alternatives Student Assault Center (DVA/SAC) hotline.
