Part of the School of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, the IRW was founded in 1977 by faculty and administrators seeking to expand feminist scholarship and activism beyond the university’s fledgling Women’s Studies program.
Today, the IRW supports a broad range of programming designed to stimulate research and activism on gender, sexuality and women within and across the disciplines, throughout and beyond Rutgers.
