Welcome to the blog for Washington and Lee’s Gender Action Group (GAG, yup, that’s our acronym!). This group formed in the wake of the Juicy J controversy of Fancy Dress, 2014. Our aims are:
- To provide a forum for critical thinking and intelligent discussion about gender issues and about issues that intersect with gender;
- To generate campus programs and events that promote a healthy atmosphere for women and men on campus; and
- To anticipate gender problems before they happen and thereby prevent further entrenchment of negative gender dynamics.
A much more rudimentary form of a blog was used in the spring of 2008 to address issues on campus. Here’s a link to that site, which is called “Speaking Freely.”
