The Gender & Women's Studies Department at Illinois has helped countless students develop a solid understanding of gender and women's issues that has made a lasting impact on their lives. Our students have contributed important research on issues ranging from girls' education to women's health, from domestic violence to welfare policy. Some have earned professional degrees in law, business and social work, while others have gone on to earn Ph.D.s in their respective fields. They have become teachers, counselors, artists, journalists, librarians, scientists, and more. Every year we hear from former students who, no matter what path they've chosen, identify their gender & women's studies courses as a turning point in their lives.

With your help, the Gender & Women's Studies Department can influence more lives. Please add your voice of support for the Gender & Women's Studies Department by making a gift to the Gender & Women's Studies Department Annual Fund today. Every gift is a precious resource that enables us to build upon the level of support for Gender & Women's Studies that many have worked so hard to develop in the last 28 years of the Program's existence. Each contribution is a lasting investment that has the potential to affect lives.

Your gift will make a lasting impact on the future of Gender & Women's Studies at Illinois.
