Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies

As feminist scholars, we understand many of the Trump Administration Executive Orders to be an assault on American values. Efforts to ban travel, deny scientific fact, to remove legal protections, eradicate funding, and attack the First Amendment erode our civil rights in unacceptable ways. We stand with the resistance movements, and are committed to do all that we can to create a more just society for ALL.

Rest in Power

WGSS salutes the life of Dr. Angela Bowen. The first PhD in Women’s Studies from Clark University, Dr. Bowen taught in WGSS from 1996-2009. She touched the lives of countless students; and particularly inspired a generation of CSULB activists to understand and fight racism, sexism, and homophobia.  Dr. Bowen had a significant impact–and we honor her legacy by continuing the work that was so important to her.
