I have often wondered why there is a Woman’s studies program and a Woman’s Resource center on virtually all American universities. Do women really need to be studied? And, if so, what do you learn? How to better pick up a woman in a bar? Inquiring minds want to know.
And why is there not a Men’s studies program? Are men not worthy of study? Do men not need resources?
To further confuse the matter, many universities now call it Women and Gender studies. Isn’t the other gender male? If so, couldn’t we just call the program “people studies?”
I called Colorado University and I talked to some of the sharpest minds concerning this topic. I learned that gender studies are based on fluidity and binary roles. I don’t know what that means. But, then again, I am not some smart woman studies professor. This video will help us all learn and grow.
