Established at Cornell University in 1972, FGSS seeks to address some of the most important issues the world faces today, for example migration and human rights, particularly from the perspective of the most vulnerable populations, by offering students the opportunity to study a wide range of fields from the perspectives of feminist and LGBTQIA critical analysis, in global and local contexts and with the purpose of promoting social justice.
The Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program remains committed to promoting the study of feminism, but also to advocating for the fair and equal treatment of women on campus, across the country, and around the world. For faculty and students alike, our goal is to be a gathering place for all those interested in and concerned with questions of gender and sexuality. Your donation helps make this possible in many ways; providing support to student research, guest speakers, faculty and student gatherings, and much, much, more. Many of you have fond memories of your time with fellow FGSS students and professors. Please consider a pledge or donation to Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
