College and Community Fellowship's Theater for Social Change will offer a performance titled, "The Letters Behind My Name," directed by Elizabeth Mirarchi.  Based in Harlem this group "uses theater to raise awareness about the impact of mass incarceration on women, families, and communities. TSC’s original performances are based on ensemble members’ life stories and experiences with the criminal justice system and as returning citizens, with a focus on eliminating barriers to higher education and advocating for reform."

WGS Brandeis

Welcome to the website of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program (WGS) at Brandeis. We are a community of undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff and Board members from a range of disciplines and backgrounds. Together we ask questions about intersectional aspects of women, gender and sexuality in classes, lectures and a range of public events.

We offer an undergraduate major and minor in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies and help to support the undergraduate minor in Sexuality and Queer Studies (SQS). We also offer a standalone MA in Women’s & Gender Studies and 10 joint MA programs in which graduate students focus on WGS and another discipline. We collaborate with a range of groups on campus and are generously supported by our National Board.

Browse our webpages, learn about our history, join our Facebook group and Twitter feeds, and be in touch with suggestions and questions at any time. We are always happy to hear from you!
