Message from the Director

The Faculty Committee of the Program in Women’s Gender, and Sexuality Studies is dedicated to the scholarship and teaching in service of the struggle toward equity, safety, and justice for all people and our planet.

We reaffirm our ongoing commitment to stand in solidarity with those targeted by forces of repression. We actively denounce homophobia, misogyny, racism, transphobia, xenophobia, ableism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, and all other forms of hate and bigotry.
