Women’s studies programs are a mainstay on most college campuses, but how representative are they of women or their concerns?  Instead of being academic, many have plunged into ideological activism.  Karin Agness, President of the Network of enlightened Women (NeW), provides an overview of current women’s studies programs and centers and how they are failing to properly educate college students.


  • Colleges and universities across the nation have women's studies departments, which have activist, rather than academic roots.
  • Often, women’s studies departments assume the sexes are hostile to each other, focusing on inequality.
  • These programs are often hostile to conservative or alternative viewpoints.
