The Women's and Gender Studies Program at Iowa State University, established in 1977, examines issues relevant to social identities such as gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and age. Through coursework, research initiatives, and community outreach, we engage in ways to challenge existing systems of knowledge and forge new scholarship based on the centrality of gender and other axes of power.

Your continued support of Iowa State University's Women’s and Gender Studies Program is greatly appreciated.
