In 1973, the first national conference on Sexism in Education was convened by the Women's Liberation Movement, fuelled by concern for the position of women and girls in society and Women's Studies courses were established at Flinders and Adelaide Universities. Teachers and Students quickly became aware of a shortage of materials in this area and a group of women educators began meeting in 1974 to redress this. In July 1975 the Women's Studies Resource Centre was established at Wattle Park Teachers College funded by a grant from the Australian National Advisory Committee for International Women's Year. After moving several times the WSRC relocated to its present address in the suburb of North Adelaide.
