Welcome to Brandeis Women's Studies Research Center!

Brandeis Women’s Studies Research Center (WSRC) is an innovative, interdisciplinary research center of scholars, artists, students, and faculty who study gender issues and women’s lives.

Advancing the social justice mission of Brandeis University, the WSRC contributes intellectually to the university as well as to national and international communities.

WSRC operates on principles of interdisciplinary exchange and discovery through three core programs: The Scholars Program, The Student Scholar Partnership Program and the Arts Program.

Be sure to check out our Affiliated Programs such as C-Change, a program that engages medical schools and academic health centers in action research promoting culture change, and On Equal Terms, a site-specific, mixed-media installation that brings viewers into the experiences of women who work in construction and skilled trades.
