The Women’s Committee seeks to foster discussions of transnational feminist scholarship with an emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches to social justice. The Women’s Committee carries out advocacy, theory, and praxis through membership recruitment and placement, the selection of co-chairs, program planning, coalition building, and the administration of the Gloria E. Anzaldua Award for Independent Scholars, Contingent or Community College Faculty.
