Women & Gender Studies at TCU

TCU’s interdisciplinary Department of Women and Gender Studies puts women, gender, and sexuality at the center of academic investigation. Our programs promote inquiry into the intersections of gender with other identity categories; the workings of power in society; and the means of advancing social justice and equality.
