Gender and Women's Studies Program

Visit Group Website

The discipline of Gender and Women's Studies has a vision of a world free from sexism. By necessity, freedom from sexism must include a commitment to freedom from national chauvinism; class, ethnic, racial, and heterosexual bias; economic exploitation; religious persecution; ageism; and ableism. Gender and Women's Studies seeks to identify, understand, and challenge ideologies and institutions that knowingly or unknowingly oppress and exploit others, or deny fundamental human rights. Thus, Gender and Women's Studies envisions a world in which all persons can develop their fullest potential.
