The Gender and Feminism Research Network brings together scholars and students at UCL and beyond, working across the arts, humanities and social and political sciences.

Our aim is to explore the points where gender and feminist politics intersect with a diverse range of power relations and social movements. We also want to support broader EDI initiatives at UCL, working towards social change and widening access to research on gender and sexual diversity.
