Introducing Feminist Frameworks

Going beyond what is typically covered in introductory trainings on gender, diversity, and inclusion, this program advances critical understandings of feminism, intersectionality, gender, and systems of oppression. Students will engage with feminist theory and scholarship by women about social identities, power, privilege, and injustice to develop a more robust understanding of foundational concepts and practices for personal, political, and social change.
