Looking back on the past forty years, women have made great strides toward equality, and "women's rights" was once a proud rallying cry.
Today we are more likely to speak of women's rights as they pertain to gender or family, or to other nations, as if in the United States there were no more work to do.
We do a disservice to women when we ignore the continuing need to champion women's rights.

THE WOMEN'S AND GENDER STUDIES PROGRAM AT MONTGOMERY COLLEGE
The Women's and Gender Studies Program offers courses about women and gender for both women and men. The program is designed to explore the experiences and contributions of women to their cultures. Informed by feminist theory, Women's Studies courses:
- challenge false assumptions and theories about women, race, and class
- encourage rigorous critical thinking
- raise issues of gender bias and the subjective nature of knowledge
- support women's development as individuals and as participating members of their larger communities
- expand women's and men's options beyond the limits of traditional gender roles.
These writing-intensive courses help students consider the difference that gender makes in family relationships, friendships, education, and work. They are comfortable settings for delving into feminist scholarship and theory.
In addition to the interdisciplinary introductory course on women's and gender studies, courses in the program include: women's history, literature, sociology, psychology, physical education, and women's health.
Honors modules are available for some classes. Service learning and internship opportunities are frequently offered. Opportunities to pursue independent study projects are also available.
