Our faculty and students are both scholars and feminist activists with a vision of social justice. As such, we are committed to:

  • Working toward centering those who are marginalized and vulnerable 
  • Promoting an approach to women’s issues that integrates race, class, sexuality, nationality, citizenship, age, ability and other markers of social inequity      
  • Recognizing and challenging the operation of power and privilege, both within the campus and in the broader society
  • Actively challenging sexism, racism, heterosexist bias, and class privilege
  • Ensuring that those most affected by policies and practices are at the decision-making table
  • Informing the community that the struggle for gender justice and women’s human rights is global
