Shift your perspective, see through the eyes of others, and please, help us to see past the differences that divide us.
Overcoming the gender barrier isn’t about knowledge. It’s not about history, it’s not about facts, and it’s not about legislation.
It’s about understanding.
At Purchase, we believe that you need to relate, you need to empathize with someone in order to truly accept them. Through our interdisciplinary approach, we’ll not only explore gender issues from a historical perspective, but we’ll also look at the roles power, nationality, race, religion, and class all had in shaping our perceptions, and how we can move past them.
The Digital Collections Center regularly creates instructive, open access online exhibits that represent Purchase’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
