Mansfield’s Women’s Studies Program cultivates an interdisciplinary program of study related to women’s studies and issues. It guides the development of the 18 hour academic minor in Women’s Studies and offers many extracurricular activities. Each semester, the Women’s Studies Program publishes a newsletter Highlighting Women’s Issues that includes writing by students, staff, and faculty. Each year it hosts several Women’s Arts and Culture Events, which may feature performances, talks, readings, films, or art exhibits by women. Women’s Studies Program participants serve on the Women’s Studies Steering Committee and participate in Women’s Studies activities, according to their time and interests. We welcome student involvement in all our activities.
