Gender inequality still affects people in everyday life, from the wage disparity between men and women to LBGTI rights. UQ has been teaching Gender Studies for 41 years and it is the only university in Queensland that does so. UQ is also one of the few remaining universities in Australia thats offers Gender Studies as a major. These cuts are part of a larger epidemic of universities scaling back Arts programs and limiting student choice in education.
- The Executive Dean of Arts at UQ, Fred D'Agostino
We, the undersigned, oppose cuts to the Gender Studies major at UQ. We draw attention to the fact that Gender Studies is not offered anywhere else in Queensland, and is only offered in a few remaining universities across Australia.This cut is part of a larger epidemic of Australian universities scaling back Arts programmes and limiting students' choice in education.
