The Collective

The members of the Women's Resource Centre form what is referred to as The Collective. This organizational structure is what is most often used by women's groups and organizations. In a collective, there is no voting. In order for a decision to be made, the whole group must reach a consensus. This means there is no hierarchical structure so that every person holds the same position and space.

Operating as a collective is a way of breaking down the power structures that present themselves in hierarchical structures. Collectives make use of the ideas & opinions of all its members. This serves to empower women by giving each individual the ultimate power over the decision making process.


The Women's Resource Centre website is maintained by the WRC Collective.
