domains of influence. Built on the wisdom, commitments, and competencies
of 28 years of running New Words Bookstore, CNW is creating spaces and
places where women's words matter. Contact CNW at 617-876-5310 or firstname.lastname@example.org,

Program in Women's Studies. Exploring gender with the
tools of different, and often multiple, disciplines, Women's Studies
subjects strive to help MIT students better understand how knowledge
and value take different forms depending on a variety of social variables.
In the course of their inquiry, students not only learn how to use gender
as a category of analysis, but also reflect on the manifestation of
gender in their own lives, leading to a range of personal and intellectual
discoveries. Although gender is a central component of every subject,
the study of gender requires attention to connections between gender,
sexuality, race, class, religion, nationality, and other social categories;
different subjects shed light on different aspects of such connections.
