Women's Studies

Women's Studies

Women's studies places women's experiences and lives at the center of study, and draws on feminist and interdisciplinary methods in examining topics such as social and cultural constructs of gender; systems of privilege and oppression; and relationships between power and gender as they intersect with other identities and social locations such as age, race, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, and disability.
