Background

GJI logo

During academic years 2015-16, faculty from all three campuses at Georgetown University participated in a set of exploratory conversations about how best to harness and support the work of Georgetown faculty who are deeply engaged in research on gender justice, particularly as it is situated within social justice and civil rights.  Their goal was to envisage the best kind of structure for promoting an intersectional and interdisciplinary approach to gender justice centered at the University. The Gender+ Justice Initiative (G+JI) builds on the long-standing and path-breaking research already being done at Georgetown and catalyzes dialogue on the impact of sex and gender across departments and campuses.  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.
