About Research & Social Analysis
Research, social analysis and documentation are all critical to
building a strong social justice movement. The most effective advocates
and organizers are armed with both the relevant facts and the critical
analysis that bear on the issues they fight for.
WCRC approaches social issues principally from the vantage point of
how women of color and poor women of color are affected. Our particular
interest is in uncovering dynamics of power and privilege related to
race, class and gender.
WCRC also has an interest in documenting the practices and
experiences of social justice organizing. The struggles for women's
rights and social justice will unfold over the long term and future
organizers will build on the work we do today. Thus we document, as
fully as possible, the goals, rationales, methodologies, successes and
challenges of WCRC's work and women of color organizing more broadly.
