Julie Shayne in Ms. Magazine: "The Trump Era Proves That Women’s Studies Matters"

screnshot from Ms. Magazine article

IAS faculty member Julie Shayne wrote a piece for Ms. Magazine online about the importance of Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies (GWSS), especially in the Trump era. In it she argues that GWSS is fundamental for its explanatory power; it is needed for its ability to demand accountability, and its expertise in documenting both injustice and resistance. Shayne makes her case in part by envisioning how the president’s rape and sexual assault accusations would have been covered by the media were they all GWSS trained.
