Take Part in the Women's Building in San Francisco
Founded in 1971 as the first women-owned and operated community center in the country, the San Francisco Women’s Centers has been working to guarantee a safe space and reliable social services for women and girls in the city.
And since 1979, they’ve done it from the Women’s Building—or El Edificio de Mujeres—in the Mission, a women-led community space advocating self-determination, gender equality and social justice.
Through education, cultural arts activities, and economic services (all available in both English and Spanish), the Women’s Building helps more than 20,000 low-income women and their families every year.

The Women's Buildling in Mission District
The Women’s Building in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco is a treasure – inside and out. Outside, the Maestraepeace mural boldly reaches out from two facades to passerbys and admirers. Inside, local women find resources and refuge with the variety of non-profit organizations that serve them.
It's a must see during a visit to San Francisco's Mission neighborhood and just down the street from Bi-Rite and the foodie corridor.
