Women and Gender Studies Program

Gender Studies Student Organization

The Gender Studies Student Organization is a group for students who are interested in gender and feminist politics. We are anti-racist, queer friendly, and open to all students! We organize panel discussions, workshops and other events that examine contemporary social issues through a gender-conscious lens. This semester, we are collaborating with a variety of groups on and off campus, including the Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity, Maine Educationalists for Sexual Harmony (MESH) in Portland, and College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor. Our first event will be a collaborative sex positive event with MESH, and a trip to the Translating Identity Conference in Burlington, VT! Our meetings are Mondays from 2-3pm in the Women and Gender Studies House on the Portland campus, with rotating meetings in Gorham (location TBD).
