Does our understanding of the world change if we explicitly place women's experience and perspective at the center and look outward? Women's Studies answers this question with a resounding, "Yes!" It is an interdisciplinary field that explores how gender relations structure our lives. Through feminist scholarship and a focus on women, Women's Studies challenges and transforms existing thought and practices across academic boundaries. Women's Studies courses at Lane address the manner in which gender—entangled with issues of race and class—remains a critical lens of analysis in the artistic, literary, religious, political, economic, and interpersonal aspects of society.
