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 intersectional feminist politics and committed to working towards social justice. Gender Studies builds on the foundation of Women’s Studies, which was formed in order to understand the nature of women’s oppression and create significant social change. Gender Studies explores the nature of gender, and its intersection with other forms of difference and power, including class, race, ethnicity, ability, sexuality and religion. We are anti-racist, queer-friendly, accepting of all religions, and open to all students! FMI: wgs@maine.edu | 94 Bedford St, Portland
