Women's and Gender Studies et Recherches Féministes is the national professional association for the academic discipline of Women's and Gender Studies in Canada. As one of the associations that is part of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS), WGSRF brings together scholars and activists of all kinds who work in areas related to critical identity and social justice studies. We were established in 1984, and have membership across the country.
We’re an active and dynamic group of people—faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, community members—all engaged in rethinking our worlds and working towards a more just present and future for more people. Through your membership in Women's and Gender Studies et Recherches Féministes, you demonstrate your support for ongoing feminist, anti-racist, transnational, queer and trans, and other related research, scholarship, education, service and activism in Women's and Gender Studies in Canada.
