Resources

Pro-Woman Resources!
Welcome! These are just a few resources that the Women’s Initiative recommends for pro-woman news, information, and entertainment. We’ll be adding to it all year–websites as well as people’s favorite pro-woman books, magazines, movies, TV shows, music, artists, authors, you name it! Feel free to leave suggestions on our Facebook page (Saint Rose Women’s Initiative) or blog (csrwomensinitiative.wordpress.com)!
