Looking to explore gender and its intersection with race, ethnicity, nationality, class, disability, sexuality and other elements of diversity? If so then perhaps you might be interested in taking a look at the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies department at Ohio University. You can do so by visiting their website.
