Humans of WGS

The Humans of WGS initiative began in Fall 2019. Dedicated to showcasing the academic accomplishments, extracurricular interests, and personal insights from our Boston College Women’s and Gender Studies Program community members, this ongoing photo series project shines a light on the beauty and depth of the WGS community.


We invite current Women’s and Gender Studies students, faculty, and alumni to submit a reflection, or a photo and written feature (300 words max.) reflecting on their academic, professional, and personal experiences in the program through this form. These personal submissions will be featured in our newsletter, social media, and/or marketing campaigns.


We invite you to nominate or challenge your fellow peers to answer short prompts such as “If you could construct your own WGS course, what might it look like?” or “What does the future of feminism mean to you?” Your answers will be featured on our newsletter, social media, and/or marketing campaigns. Submit responses — or nominations — on our form here.


Interested in writing a feature for our special edition, end-of-semester newsletter? Email us at with an idea for a story you’d like to write pertaining to the Women’s and Gender Studies Program, such as a personal submission relating to your experience navigating women’s and gender studies issues within or outside of the classroom or a creative writing piece relating to women’s and gender issues (e.g., poetry, fiction writing, etc).


Those graduating from the Women’s and Gender Studies Program are strongly encouraged to fill out this form to be honored at our end-of-year newsletter and senior send-off social media posts. Submission deadlines are the 1st of December for Fall graduates and the 1st of May for Spring graduates.
