Women’s and Gender Studies is an important field of inquiry that arose from the effort to understand gender roles and women’s historic struggle for justice throughout the world. The Women’s and Gender Studies Program explores the diverse experiences, contributions, and perspectives of women and men, offers an interdisciplinary approach to the examination of the cultural construction of gender, and provides a feminist critique of dominant power relationships in the global community (familial, social, economic, and political), as well as an opportunity to manifest Berea College’s commitment to gender equity. The Interdisciplinary Academic Program offers both a major and a minor program in Women’s and Gender Studies.
