Celebrating 50 Years of Gender, Women and Sexuality Studies: “Damn Straight, We Persisted”

“Persistence is Resistance” is an open-access book that celebrates 50 years of gender, women and sexuality studies (GWSS) by welcoming existing community members and curious folks alike. This book is both about and a manifestation of 50 years of GWSS history.

In just fifty years, GWSS professors went from no programs, no course materials, no full-time professors, to more than can be contained in university walls, including paywalls.
