Welcome to Gender and Social Justice
Big news! The Gender and Social Justice program will launch in September 2019, replacing the existing Women’s Studies program.
This exciting new interdisciplinary program develops awareness of the experiences of marginalized people in relation to gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, disability, and class.
Whether you are majoring, minoring or taking a few courses in Gender and Social Justice, you will learn about equality, diversity and justice, and how forms of collective action challenge injustice.

In 2016, Dr. Anne Innis Dagg joined the Women's Studies program (now Gender and Social Justice) as an adjunct professor. This appointment was made in recognition of Dr. Dagg's long career of feminist research and leadership. Indeed, she was one of the key early figures who helped to create Women's Studies at University of Waterloo.
