Since 2002, The FWSA has been hosting conferences to promote research in gender, women’s, and feminist studies. The FWSA conference, which is now a biennial event and our flagship event, brings together academics, activists, and policy workers to showcase the latest gender and feminist studies research. The conference provides a forum in which to discuss research, pedagogy, activism and policy and facilitates discussions, debate, networking and professional development opportunities.
