Follow our 40 day long celebration on social media beginning February 11th. We will feature faculty, students, and alumni and their thoughts about Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies @BGSU. 

During our Women’s History Month Events we will be live streaming our alumni panel, Susan Brownmiller Keynote, and our Research and Art Symposium in March so that you can virtually attend. 

An Opportunity to Give:

Since Women’s Studies was introduced in 1978, the program has evolved to become the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program at BGSU. Today’s program provides the same thoughtful, interdisciplinary studies as the original curriculum and continues to make a difference in the lives of our students.
