get involved

I want to encourage each and every one of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor, and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and each other.

Gender and Policy Network
 


princeton.edu/gpn

The Gender and Policy Network is composed of Princeton University students, faculty and alumni whose experiences, research and careers have convinced them of the salience of gender as a critical variable in the design, evaluation and implementation of policies. Recognizing the significance of gender to public and international affairs, the Gender and Policy Network aims to promote the integration of gender into the curriculum of the Woodrow Wilson School and to promote engagement of these issues in the Princeton University community.

We do so by fostering dialogues and supplementing the curriculum at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs (WWS) at Princeton University. GPN’s goals are to:
• Expand student learning about gender as a variable in public policies;
• Develop personal and professional contacts for sharing information and guidance among students, staff, faculty, and alumni; and
• Provide a forum for dialogue on contemporary issues about gender and policy.

GPN has hosted discussions and film screenings on topics such as work-life balance, sexual assault, representation of women in media, and other issues at the intersection of gender, sexism, and policy.

Email GPN Co-Chair Cleo Hircsh, clhirsch@princeton.edufor more information.
