Active Student Clubs
Join the Feminist Action Club or the Undergraduate Sexuality Studies Association (USSA). It is great way to meet like-minded people and add value to your university experience. Both groups run many successful events from conferences, symposiums, art exhibits to discussion groups and fundraising.
I love Gender and Women’s Studies because it is an interdisciplinary field that involves many branches of knowledge such as sociology, psychology, history, and economics. I truly enjoyed the Gender and Women’s Studies courses I have taken thus far. What I like most is studying things through a feminist lens and learning more about social constructions of gender and how gender intersects with race/ethnicity, class, age, ability, nationality, and sexuality.
