Pursuing Women’s & Gender Studies at Regis
A minor in Women's and Gender Studies examines how gender shapes human experience. It also explores the historical and contemporary roles, experiences, and achievements of women.
Women’s and Gender Studies
Women's and Gender Studies examines the intersections of gender, race, and class, and also considers how gender roles are constructed in different global cultures and historical periods. Women have made important contributions in traditionally defined “male pursuits” (politics, science, art, etc.). Although traditionally understudied, women’s experiences and participation have led to the reexamination of long-held interpretations and conventional wisdoms in a wide variety of academic fields. Uniting all women and gender studies inquiries is the effort to understand and explain inequality between men and women, and to envision the possibility of new social practices that could bring about greater equality, mutual understanding, and human flourishing.
