The Interdisciplinary Program in Gender Studies was founded in 2000 by the late Prof. Dafna Izraeli. It is an advanced degree program, aimed to train cutting edge academics and professionals in this field.
Gender studies focus on the nature and experience of gender identity among women and men, and the construct of cultural differences between the sexes. The underlying assumption is that gender influences all areas of an individual’s social, political, and cultural activity and constitutes a central structural factor in the social order.
