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.

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.
Princeton Students for Gender Equality
Princeton Students for Gender Equality (PSGE) is an inclusive, intersectional forum for discussions of feminism, gender, sex, and sexuality. In addition to weekly discussions, we spearhead and sponsor projects to promote gender equality and inclusion at the University and beyond. See our recent Princeton Feminists photo campaign at www.princetonfeminists.wordpress.com. We also have an active listserv where members share related articles, campus events, and ideas.

Consider joining our partner organization, Princeton Women’s Mentorship Program, as a great way to build community with fellow students and get to know faculty and staff outside of the classroom. PWMP is student-led, and its mission is to empower women to take on leadership positions on campus and beyond.
With low rates of persistence in engineering for women, we seek to provide access to the field and to change the perception of engineering for future generations through an applied design experience and vibrant community.

Women in Science Colloquium
The Women in Science Colloquium (WiSC) is a Princeton student group that works to foster discussion between female faculty in science, math, and engineering and students in those disciplines. As of March 2016, we are officially an affiliate chapter of the Scientista Foundation, which is a national organization that empowers pre-professional women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through content, communities, and conferences. Overall, our mission is to provide women in STEM with resources, a network of support, and a way to connect with other women in STEM through our events, including monthly dinners and panel discussions with female faculty and study breaks. To stay in the loop with WiSC and to find the dates of our dinners and events, sign up for our listserv: wisc-announce. People looking to get involved can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
