Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies

Studying at the intersection of disciplines like psychology, sociology, politics, and history, students in Women’s and Gender Studies acquire and apply the tools of scholarship in gender and sexuality across their coursework.

Our students and faculty study world’s cultures and economies for a deeper understanding of women and men as gendered beings and of ways gender identities are formed and performed. Faculty and students at Lake Forest see value in examining issues of gender and sexuality impacting everyone, especially women.
