Department of Women's and Gender Studies
The Women's and Gender Studies Department aims to help students gain knowledge about the complex ways that gender ideas and practices shape the world around them. Gender affects the way in which we live our lives in a personal way---it affects families, children, reproduction, and the organization of work in the home---but it also affects the formation and limitations of every major social institution and cultural practice. Our goal is to help students see the ways in which gender is being thought about and practiced, as well as to help them develop their own analytical skills to evaluate, assess, and imagine differently.
