Description:

Positive change for women and other gender minorities in educational settings has been brought forth incrementally and only through their extraordinary contributions and struggles. For the past 50 years, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Centers (WGS) have served as critical sites of feminist praxis and continue to play a central role in advancing gender equity and inclusion in higher education.


By Degrees: Gender, Education and Progress will engage directors of
Women, Gender, and Sexuality centers and feminist scholars to consider
the persistence of institutionalized sexism and other forms of inequality in
higher education, the expansive contemporary commitments of WGS
Centers, and the multifaceted structural actions still required to transform
higher education into a democratizing institution that is equitable and
liberating for all.
