Township of Langley’s Success Story of 2013

In June 2015, at Congress in Ottawa, Dr. Allyson Jule, Co-Director of TWU's Gender Studies Institute, was elected President Elect for the Canadian Association: Women’s and Gender Studies et Recherches Feministes (WGSRF). Her term as President Elect will be 2015 – 2016 and her role as President will be 2016 – 2018. See this.


The association was founded in 1982 as the Canadian-wide, bilingual, professional association of Women's and Gender Studies practitioners in Canada. It is composed largely of academic faculty across Canada, in addition to graduate and undergraduate students, community activists, and policy researchers -- but is open to everyone who supports its mission and goals. The WGSRF is a member association of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences/la fédération canadienne des sciences humaines.

The goals of the WGSRF are to promote and foster Women's and Gender Studies (under all its myriad names) as an academic field and to build a network of its practitioners across Canada, in both languages. The association encourages a wide definition of Women's and Gender Studies as a field of study and aims to aid those teaching and researching in the field in a variety of locations.
