Welcome to Gender and Social Justice

About Gender and Social Justice

The Gender and Social Justice program launched in September 2019, replacing the Women’s Studies program. Gender and Social Justice teaches students about social justice, with particular attention to the role of gender.  Students learn to put intersectional feminism into practice in diverse ways as they work to build inclusive, just, sustainable communities, locally and globally.

Students, whether they are majors or minors ( see GSJ programs), or taking GSJ courses as electives, will find our courses timely, accessible, relevant, varied, and surprising. These courses seek to cultivate awareness of the experiences of people marginalized by such features as gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, disability, and class.  More than this, students will learn to use the theoretical framework of intersectional feminism to critically analyze systems and representations.
