Overview

As a student of Women's and Gender Studies at Chatham University, you will gain a profound understanding of how to influence ongoing political and economic inequalities. You’ll explore how media and marketing construct women and disempowered bodies in manipulative ways as you learn that feminism is about addressing institutionalized inequality for all people. 

Studying these topics at Chatham is particularly rewarding, as issues related to gender are at the forefront of Chatham’s identity and mission. Students seek to understand the new scholarship on women and the new intellectual frameworks, methodologies, and feminist theories that examine gender as a social construct.
