IN 2013, THE UNIVERSITY OF WOLLONGONG CUT ITS GENDER STUDIES MAJOR, declaring that it was not "cost effective". I don't know about you, but I don't look to my uni for cost efficiency. If I want cost efficiency, I go to Ikea. WE BELIEVE THAT STUDYING GENDER IS THE FIRST STEP TO MAKING OUR SOCIETIES MORE EQUAL. This blog documents the lectures and work of the UOW Free School, a student run, academic project replacing and reshaping gender studies in 2013.
