Praxis: CWE-WGSS Student Leadership Board

Praxis is a hub of students who are looking for ways to integrate feminist theory and practice. A joint initiative between the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and the Center for Women, Praxis seeks to introduce feminist theory into non-classroom spaces to apply feminist ideas in the service of the community. Praxis also exposes students to professionals and mentors outside of the academy whose work employs feminist principles, perspectives, and methods.
