Homepage - Department of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies.


Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies is the interdisciplinary study of women's roles, experience, expression, and lives nationally and transnationally, as well as the study of the intersectionality of gender with race, class, sexuality, nation, religion, ethnicity, ability, and age. With liberation, justice, and equity issues as central concerns; Women's Studies engages in scholarly feminist inquiry both of the knowledge generated by other academic disciplines, and of societal institutions and processes, and explores the possibilities of feminist transformation of these.
