About the Department
We are inspired by feminist movements for social justice locally, nationally and globally. Our faculty strive to provide students with the tools to analyze and articulate relationships among systems of structural inequality, including those based on sex/gender, race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, religion and nation. We aim to stimulate students’ personal and intellectual growth, political engagement and social action. We also work to facilitate intellectual, curricular and programmatic exchanges and innovations on campus and beyond.
