Honor Society

Apply to Join GWSHS

We invite Global Women's Studies minors or any student at Brigham Young University having a strong interest in women's studies to apply to join our honor society.

Here are some events to watch for:

Every Thursday 11a-12p: 216 HRCB Weekly Club Gathering
February: GWSHS Induction Ceremony on February 2 at 6:00 pm in the Alice Louise Reynolds Auditorium, Harold B. Lee Library

The purpose of GWSHS is to encourage and support scholarship and excellence in global women's studies at Brigham Young University. Excellence in global women's studies can help to accomplish the "Aims of a BYU Education. "Students who understand profoundly the lives, needs, and accomplishments of women will be spiritually strengthened and intellectually enlarged. Their character will be built as they seek to reach beyond themselves to help others, and this can lead to a life of learning and service."

All GWSHS activities this year are aimed to encourage and support scholarship and excellence in global women’s studies by approaching topics with a holistic understanding of how race, ethnicity, indigeneity, ability, age, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, citizenship, religion, language, and education intersect.

Members will be able to participate in lectures, discussions, panels, workshops, films, and service activities related to women's lives and issues. GWSHS creates a sense of community among students, faculty, and campus organizations involved in global women's studies.
