The core mission of the MIT Program in Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) is to educate MIT undergraduates on the importance of gender equity, and to promote a broad understanding of how gender and its complex intersectionality with race, sexuality, ethnicity, class, ability, and religious affiliation (among other identity categories) fundamentally shapes knowledge and its production, EVEN at MIT. WGS faculty affiliates engage in cutting-edge research on a variety of subjects relating to historical and contemporary questions of gender in the U.S. and across the globe. WGS also plays an important role at the Institute in organizing engaged programming to address and encourage the often difficult discussion of gender, race and sexuality among our faculty, students, and staff. The videos you find here reflect all aspects of our program - the serious scholarly side, the politically provocative side, and the whimsical fun-loving side. Because who says justice and equality has to be boring?
