Women's Resource Center (WRC)

Fresno State Women’s Resource Center offered the following ongoing awareness prevention programs in 2014: 

  • Denim Days – In honor of Sexual Awareness Violence Month, this campaign was originally triggered by an Italian Supreme Court judge overturning a rape conviction, citing because she was wearing jeans she must have assisted removing them, thus implying her consent. Wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.
  • Take Back the Night – An event that is designed to bring awareness to ending violence against women. These rallies began as a response to sexual assault, rape, domestic violence, and murders resulting from them.
  • Rape Counseling Services (RCS) works with Women’s Resource Center training volunteers to successfully complete a 40 hour state certified program to qualify running Fresno County’s 24 hour Rape Crisis Hotline.
  • Healthy Relationships – This 45 minute interactive program offered through the Women’s Resource Center’s Violence Prevention Project helps women distinguish between healthy and unhealthy relationship characteristics, recognize red flags, and how to help a friend.
  • Peer Counseling Training – A learning situation in which students listen and help facilitate the growth and development of other students by offering support in problem solving.
