Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field that examines the biological, social and cultural construction of femininity, masculinity, sexuality and the ways we locate ourselves within gender systems. Interacting with factors such as race and class, gender structures the activities into which we enter in all aspects of life.
One of the highlights of the spring semester is the annual Gender Studies Symposium, organized by a committee of students, with support from faculty and staff.
The Program Minor
A minimum of 24 semester credits, distributed as follows:
At least 16 credits applied to the minor cannot be used for another minor or major program. In addition, at least four of the courses for the minor must be taken at Lewis & Clark.
Students interested in a Gender Studies Minor should contact the Director and/or one of the sponsoring faculty (a current list is available on the website). It is recommended that students plan early (by the end of the sophomore year) for this minor to ensure that they can schedule the required courses and the electives of their choosing.

Change or Charity? Exploring the Potential Unintended Consequences of Doing Good
When many of us see individuals struggling or widespread social problems, we are compelled to intervene. What happens, however, when we don’t utilize a critical lens to examine the potential unintended consequences of our well-intentioned actions? This interactive workshop will interrogate the differences between charity and change. Together, we will develop best change practices for social justice advocates and activists.
