Women’s Action Coalition

The Women’s Action Coalition (WAC) was a feminist direct-action organization founded by a group of friends in New York City on January 28, 1992, in response to the outrage they felt about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s confirmation hearings. Chapters were subsequently formed in other U.S. cities, including Boston, San Francisco, Houston, and Los Angeles, as well as internationally in Canada and Europe. WAC employed a direct action-approach similar to that of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) and the Women’s Health Action and Mobilization (WHAM), which encouraged activities such as demonstrations, sit-ins, civil disobedience, educational forums, and letter-writing campaigns.
