Our Mission

The mission of the Gender+ Justice Initiative (G+JI) is to build on the long-standing, path-breaking research being done on intersectional gender and racial justice across Georgetown’s departments and campuses; to catalyze scholarship and advocacy in these areas; and to make Georgetown a dynamic hub of knowledge production, community engagement, and policy development on intersectional issues of gender, racial, and economic justice. The G+JI invites faculty and students from across the University to engage in interdisciplinary conversations and to collaborate on issues of gender, antiracism, sexuality, feminism, intersectionality, inequity and inequality. 

Why the “+”? We refer to “Gender+ Justice” to signal that our concerns have gender at the core but extend to race, class, sexuality, disability and other forms of oppression. Read more about our mission and background.
