The mission of the Gender+ Justice Initiative (G+JI) is to build on the long-standing and path-breaking research already being done at Georgetown, catalyze dialogue on the impact of sex and gender across departments and campuses, and 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 sex, gender, 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, and other markers of subordination.

The 2019 G+JI Colloquium was held on October 25, with cross-campus panels on Gender+ Justice in and through Education, Public Health Gender+ Justice – Activism and Policy Impact, and Navigating Intersectional Identities – Space, Race and Politics
