Women's Studies at Waterloo
Our programs in Women's Studies explore the ways in which society is shaped by gender from an interdisciplinary perspective both today and in the past. Students and faculty examine how our world is constructed by social, historical and political forces, applying critical perspectives that take into account the intersections of gender, sexuality, race, class, disability, and place in both local and global contexts.
