       The Center for the Historical Study of Women and Gender promotes research, teaching, and intellectual exchange on historical issues related to women and gender. The Center builds upon the University's traditions and existing strengths in the field of Women's History and also seeks to engage faculty and graduate students from other departments. The Center permits the focusing of individual skills and energy into collaborative channels to promote increased grant-supported research activities, graduate training, and interaction among students, faculty, and staff.

The Center’s activities have lessened in recent years with the retirements of Professors Sklar and Dublin.  In January 2019 editorial responsibility for Women and Social Movements in the United States, 1600-2000 will shift to the University of California San Diego and UC Irvine as Rebecca J. Plant and Judy Tzu-Chun Wu become the new editors. We will maintain this website to support continuing crowdsourcing work for the Online Biographical Dictionary of the Woman Suffrage Movement in the United States, directed by Thomas Dublin.
