Women and Gender Studies
Are you interested in how gender shapes people’s lives around the world? In most cultures, gender relates to power and which roles women and men should "naturally" occupy. Our daily lives are also affected by the way gender, race, class and sexuality intersect. Study gender across many areas including art, psychology and anthropology.
