Julia Cikota - Psychology Major with minors in Women's and Gender Studies and English - Class of 2013
"The WGS minor has provided me with a great opportunity to be involved on the Wilkes campus. Besides learning about various feminist issues, I have also had the chance to meet like-minded professors, students, and community members. Thanks to the WGS minor, I am more prepared to tackle the various challenges facing women today!"
Alysha Bixler - Psychology and Sociology double major with a minor in Women's and Gender Studies -
Class of 2014
"Women's and Gender Studies courses have allowed me to see that society is structured around gender. As a woman, I desire to live equally among men; however, change cannot occur without awareness. The WGS minor provides the awareness needed to illicit change."
Catelyn Sofio - Education major with minors in Women's and Gender Studies and English - Class of 2014
"WGS classes, especially Women’s Studies 101, expose you to gender and equality issues of the past and present and challenge you to think of solutions. The best part of this minor is that it has changed how I think. It has opened my mind to new ideas and helped me in ways, academic and personal, that I would have never expected."
Kyle Wolfe - Communications Studies major with a minor in Women's and Gender Studies and History. Class of May 2013.
"WGS classes have really opened me up to new ways of viewing the world and approaching issues. I encourage students to add the minor not only to learn more about gender issues, but to become involved and to find out how they can make a difference."
