Women and Gender Studies Department at Rutgers Now Offering Social Justice Track
“Feminist Practices for Social Change”
Doesn’t it seem like Women and Gender Studies Departments are driving much of the left wing agenda on college campuses?
The College Fix reports:
Rutgers’ Women and Gender Studies Department to offer new social justice track
The Rutgers University Women and Gender Studies Department will offer a new five-year track in “Feminist Practices for Social Change” beginning next fall.
According to The Daily Targum, the offering “reflects the strong demand for courses that focus on real ways to become an activist.”
Program Assistant Undergraduate Director Ileana Nachescu, a “scholar of American Studies and transnational feminism,” added that the track “is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to assume leadership roles in contemporary social justice activism and human rights.”
Graduate Program Director Julie Rajan, whose research deals with “colonial, post-colonial, and modern-day imperialisms, women and militarism, and terrorism and resistance,” noted the program consists of three core courses, five electives, and a capstone project.
Two new courses are included in the core: “Social Justice Movements” and “Advocacy: Tactics and Techniques.”
From the story:
“Student activism changes with every generation, but old tried and true tactics still survive — Twitter or hashtag activism is a relatively recent phenomenon, but students still go to marches and protests, circulate petitions and raise their consciousness and build communities by speaking from personal experience,” Nachescu said.
Nachescu said that activism is still an important part of civic involvement today.
“There are many issues confronting us today: neoliberalism, climate change, mass incarceration and deportation, violence against women, people of color and transgender and gender-nonconforming people, to name but a few,” Nachescu said.

And ultimately, these wackos will demand that their student loans be forgiven!
This is one more great way to waste 4 years and $200,000 to get a politicized degree that makes you unemployable.
Mommy and Daddy will be sooo proud when their children come home to live in the basement…
And for the commencement ceremony everyone will wear brown shirts or be clad in all black with a balaclava and earn a BS in Antifa?
The brainwashed, indoctrinated, deluded snowflakes who follow any of these tracks/majors (Women’s Studies, Gender Studies, as well as Black and Latino Studies) will find out when they graduate and enter the real world that all their time spent at school will get them nothing better than a cashier’s job at some retail establishment. The real world is very unforgiving.
