Women's Studies


Women and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field of inquiry that grew from a concern about the way other academic fields ignored or distorted the concerns, histories, theories, experiences, and perspectives of gender, sex, and sexuality. Women and Gender Studies scholars and students, with many different points of interest and with many different methods of conducting research, seek to understand the causes, workings, and effects of power inequalities and gender-related oppression in societies past and present; explore intersections of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race, class and nationality; and strive for social justice.
