The Women's Studies Program explores the experiences of women in cultures and societies around the world. Participants of this program engage in an ongoing dialogue and debate related to women’s voices.

The Women's Studies Program at CSUDH examines the social construction of gender and sexual differences. Women’s Studies seeks to acknowledge and understand how gender relates to and intersects with ethnicity, race, social class, religion, sexuality, nationality, globalization and other factors that have shaped women's and men's lives.
