Gender studies at Marlboro approached issues of gender and sexuality from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, and brought together both theory and research methods to achieve that aim.

While gender studies has its roots in the women’s movement of the 1960s and ’70s, today the field’s exploration of identity, power, and privilege goes much further. Drawing on the feminist scholarship of women of color, as well as queer theory, gender studies examines how identity and inequality are inextricably related.
