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 and Gender Equity Centers (WGS) have served as critical sites of intellectual engagement and 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 consider the persistence of institutionalized sexism and other forms of inequality in higher education, the expansive contemporary commitments of WGS centers and other academic staff, and the multifaceted structural actions still required to transform higher education into a social institution that is equitable and liberating for all.
