Since 1977, the Center for the Study of Women and Society has promoted interdisciplinary feminist scholarship. The focus of the center’s research agenda is the study of the intersections of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, and nation in societies around the world.

The Center co-sponsors with the Women's Studies Certificate Program intellectual exchange symposia and lectures—among scholars within CUNY as well as with visiting scholars. The Center also seeks to collaborate with grassroots and professional organizations.

We are thrilled to be starting a MA program in Women's and Gender Studies in Fall 2016. Check it out!

Our Fall 2015 Speakers' Series and Newsletter will be posted soon! Please join us on Facebook (Center For The Study of Women and Society at the Graduate Center) and Twitter (@CSWS_GC) for updates and blogs from recent events!
