Women and gender (the social and historical meanings of the distinction between men and women) are fundamental categories of social, cultural, and scientific inquiry integral to the study of the diversity of human experience. Consequently, the overarching goal of the Center is to conduct research to develop original scholarship on gender and new questions promoting the growth of feminist inquiry and practice. Our aim is to investigate women in society and culture in historical and contemporary contexts at the intersection of class, race, ethnicity, and nationality and to establish connections between local issues and the global context.
