The Women’s Studies Program is designed to promote understanding and appreciation of women—in their diverse social locations and experiences—in contemporary society. The program is multi-disciplinary in nature, addressing gender-related issues through course work in literature, philosophy, psychology, sociology, religion, other humanities disciplines, and athletics. The program also sponsors occasional workshops on issues of relevance and importance to women and to men who care about the women in their lives. Students are able to incorporate an emphasis on women’s studies into any program of study at Lewis. Both men and women are encouraged to participate in the Women’s Studies Program.
