The Gender Institute is a cross-campus ANU institute launched in March 2011. It has a dual mission: (1) to connect our ongoing work on gender and sexuality in research, education and outreach and (2) to promote innovative research and programs to help redress gendered inequalities at ANU.
Our approach to gender is inclusive and intersectional – embracing women, men, transgendered and gender diverse people – and highlighting the profound interaction between gender, sexuality, race, religion, class, age and ability in structures of unequal power within and beyond the University.
