About this Program

The studies in women and gender program at Hood examines the experience of gender and the status of women cross-culturally and historically.

Program Overview

Gender categories do not exist in isolation, but intersect with race, ethnicity, nationality, class, sexuality, age and other social categories to shape identities and institutions. The program provides an analytical framework for students to examine gender across disciplines and in their own lives.
