About The Women's Building

Since 1971, San Francisco Women's Centers has represented and been guided by the belief that all women and girls have the right to safe, joyous and creative lives. In 1979, the organization purchased The Women's Building, creating one of the first women-owned community centers.

Their mission is to provide women and girls with the tools and resources they need to achieve full and equal participation in society.

Every day at The Women's Building:

  • Women can take care of themselves and their families by using our social services.
  • The well-being of women and girls is improved by our social justice advocacy.
  • Community groups, including our in-house organizations strengthen their community work by interacting and partnering with each other in a vibrant, socially progressive and affordable space.

Each year they welcome over 20,000 women and their families, connecting them with social services, community involvement opportunities, the arts, wellness and educational events.
