Gender studies Society, history and languages

With an increasing number of female leaders reshaping the global business and political landscape, and growing attention in society to gender-related issues including body image, same sex marriage, domestic violence and the rise of female breadwinners, gender studies offer insight into a range of important social issues.

Gender studies seeks to understand and explain patterned gender differences in social life, and how they shape human relationships and human experience at the individual level. Who are we? Why are we the ways we are? What directions is society taking and how can it be transformed? Gender studies offer new approaches to untangling these questions.

At Macquarie, we offer dedicated gender studies units, as well as bringing together units in sociology, anthropology, English, cultural studies, history, law, media and communications, human geography, philosophy and others.
