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.
