WGSS at Wake Forest University offers courses with a feminist interdisciplinary lens alongside outreach with human-to-human connections through which our students could realize the practical and emotional impact of feminist activism. We teach the whole student—mind, body, and spirit with the goal of transformation and renewal of the individual and the communities to which we belong.
