Since 1974, the Clayman Institute for Gender Research has been committed to making the future feminist.

The Institute empowers students and scholars in three key ways:

  • Conduct and invest in intersectional gender research
  • Mentor students through fellowships and internships
  • Inspire, translate and amplify gender scholarship
