Women’s and Gender Studies Association (WGSSA)


The Women’s and Gender Studies Association (WGSSA) is dedicated to improving the lives and academic paths of its community at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus. It is focused on exploring how academic learning on issues of gender, sexuality, race, disability and other inequalities, help shape our understanding of cultures, societies, and international development. Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary academic program that examines the theories, attitudes, and transitions of gender issues across cultures and historical periods. Our goal is to provide students with resources and discussions on topics related to the Women’s and Gender Studies program. We are committed to supporting our community through strengthening peer and faulty relationships. The WGSSA believes that academic teaching in these topics gives students the necessary skills to become successful at being critical thinkers, and active members of the community. By understanding gender theories and topics, students will be able to apply these ideas in their everyday experiences.
