Women's & Gender Studies

Gonzaga's Women's and Gender Studies program is an inter- and multi-disciplinary program that develops student capacity to understand the world through a range of theories and methodologies that include gender as a central analytic component. The program seeks to:

  1. Examine and question the constructions of gender identity and the impact these processes have on lived experiences of persons both locally and transnationally
  2. Foster understanding of the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, and class
  3. Cultivate the conviction that one has an ethical obligation to combat sexism, heterosexism, and other forms of intersecting discrimination such as racism and classism
  4. Encourage students to respect and value difference as we strive for a more just, equal society
