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

What's New

Clayman Conversations presents: Anti-abortion movements

Access to safe and legal abortion is rapidly declining across the U.S., and gains made by reproductive justice advocates are eroding. With Roe v. Wade hanging in the balance, anti-choice organizers are continuing to gain momentum at federal and local levels. In this Clayman Conversations event, speakers will address the gender and racial dimensions of the fight for reproductive justice. What are the racial dimensions of anti-abortion organizing, reproductive justice, and the fight for Roe v. Wade? Why has the far right used abortion as a battering ram in the U.S., and what might be the outcomes of this strategy? View video of the Oct. 5 event on our YouTube channel.

Clayman Conversations presents Silenced
