A Minor for All

Women’s and Gender Studies examines the world through the lens of gender. Women’s and Gender Studies crosses cultures, regions, periods, academic disciplines and theories in order to study the social roles and sexual identities in the contexts of race, class and ethnicity, as well as why and how gender has influenced who we are and what we do.
