Attend WGSS Conference Activities!

  • The section has a general membership meeting and hosts a social hour at every Annual Conference and Midwinter Meeting.
  • Not sure which committee you'd like to join? Come to the All-Committee meeting and sit in on committee meetings.
  • Can't attend the conference? You can still participate! The editors of WGSSLinks and the Women's Studies Core Books are often looking for new participants. Contact information is on the respective web pages.
