31. Program in the Study of Women and Gender

 


As the Princeton female undergraduate and faculty population grew throughout the 1970s, pressure mounted to establish a legitimate and well-regarded forum for the study of feminism and gender issues.   The University created a certificate program in women’s studies in 1982, selecting anthropology professor Kay Warren *74 as program director the following year. Warren is pictured here teaching the introductory course in women’s studies in 1985.  Renamed the Program in the Study of Women and Gender in 1999, this interdisciplinary course of study annually enrolls hundreds of male and female students in numerous classes, and awards more than a dozen graduates with certificates.
