Women and Gender Studies faculty, staff and students are committed to social justice and working to reduce inequalities of all kinds in our communities. Faculty and staff work closely with local activists addressing gender based violence, trans* rights, sex trafficking, street harassment, racial injustices, immigration issues, and economic inequality. Women and Gender Studies faculty and staff regularly teach courses that require their students to be involved in social change in their communities, and we support activism by our student organizations as well. Our signature program include Fear 2 Freedom, Take Back the Night, and the Sojourner Truth lecture.
