Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field of research, encompassing the study of issues that range from feminism and women’s studies to masculine studies, queer theory, and sexuality studies. Gender Studies is deeply committed to an intersectional analysis of the phenomena it examines, understanding that gender, class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, power, and inequality are inextricably connected.
