Welcome to Gender and Women's Studies

The Gender and Women's Studies Program at University of Illinois at Chicago is an interdisciplinary unit dedicated to investigating the relationships between gender (including transgender), sexuality, feminism, and social justice.

GWS insists that gender and sexuality must be understood through their intersections with race, class, age, nation, citizenship, and ability. We conceptualize how these interconnected categories inform and structure social life, culture, politics, social movements and knowledge production.

GWS sees a sustained engagement with local, national and transnational communities as central to our research and teaching/work at UIC.
