-JAMIE POPOVICS '14

I started at Pace as an English major, taking women and gender studies classes as electives. After each one I wanted to take more and more, and finally decided to double major. It was one of the best decisions I have made. I've always been interested in the topics we discuss in women's studies classes and the course offerings offer a wide platform for discourse. I feel the courses I have taken have challenged my beliefs and made me consider things in new ways that have had a tremendous impact on my everyday life.

-TARA HITESHAW '16

The Women’s and Gender Studies curriculum at Pace is a platform of writing-intensive and politically-charged classes that fuel my passions for gender equality and activism. The program has provided me the tools to combine my passion for writing and politics into one degree.

-MELODY ESTEVEZ '17

I love being a part of the Women’s and Gender Studies department because of the inclusivity and loving community in each class I have taken. To be taught in a straight forward, unflinching manner is what sets the Women and Gender Studies apart from the rest. I am constantly exploring the history, issues, and rhetoric of gender around the world and what it means to be a woman in the 21st century. More importantly, sharing a safe space with people from different walks of life has given me the opportunity to become a better ally to all.

Choosing to be a part of the Women's and Gender Studies major has shaped so many aspects of my life. I have been awarded the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the best professors, who have helped me and furthered my career and involvement in the Pace community, whether it be from writing a recommendation to enhancing my knowledge in the field.
