Welcome to Global Gender and Sexuality Studies

Our department is one of the first women’s studies programs in the nation. We inspire critical thinking, challenging students to better understand how gender and sexuality shape the world and our places in it.

“Difference is that raw and powerful connection from which our personal power is forged.”  – Audre Lorde
