About

Explore the dynamics that shape your everyday experiences as a gendered person in contemporary culture. In this Women's Studies and Feminist Research program from the University of Western Ontario you will learn how to develop a critical perspective that takes factors such as sex, gender, sexuality, race, class and disability into account.

You might find your worldview transformed as you apply these perspectives to your study in other classes and to all aspects of your life. 

This Women's Studies and Feminist Research program from the University of Western Ontario reflects an expanding field of feminist research including feminist theory, health issues, philosophy, queer issues and sexuality studies, legal issues, violence against women, women and equity in the workplace, and women and the creative arts.
