Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies News

Students interested in learning more about where, how and why gender, sexuality and women’s issues meet can do so at Temple’s College of Liberal Arts. The College’s Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies program focuses on a wide range of health, equality and social issues both historical and contemporary. The program’s faculty also takes care to challenge their students to be inquisitive about these topics, and faculty members passionately listen and respond to feedback about what areas the students want to learn more about. Temple also pays attention to what the students, alumni and faculty learn and experience beyond the classroom and tells those stories here. Read their stories below and please contact us if you have a story of your own you think we should tell.
