What’s In Our Feed This Week

Every week or two, we will be posting a collection of links to news and information related to gender or women’s issues. We can’t cover everything that happens in depth, but we are happy to help you find more information and learn about sources of information on the web by sharing things we see in our newsfeeds. If you see something interesting and think we ought to share it in our “What’s In Our Feed” posts, email us at wcenter@uidaho.edu.
