Abby's House, Center for Women and Families


Our mission is to provide the WOU community with educational programming, information, and referral services designed to promote equity and non-violence. We embrace a feminist model that empowers all people to actively stand against all forms of violence, harassment, verbal abuse, discrimination, and hatred.


We envision Western Oregon University promoting the core values of our namesake Abigail Scott Duniway and other feminists before us. We strive for social justice for all people– including a community free of oppression, violence, and inequality. We imagine a community that values learning about gender with the goal of empowering people to create/foster an inclusive and just society.


The name Abby's House was chosen in honor of Abigail Scott Duniway, who fought for women's right to vote and own property predominantly in Oregon. She was the first woman to register to vote in Oregon.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
