Women's and gender studies concentrates on how gender shapes daily life. Though the initial focus is on women's lives, we analyze how gender structures the lives of both women and men, paying particular attention to differences among women by race, ethnicity, sexuality, nationality, religion, and age as they vary by location and time.
