Program Summary & Location


India has its own long and rich history of women's movements and feminist activism. By learning first-hand about gender issues facing their counterparts in both rural and urban India, UWEC students will increase their awareness of best feminist practices in specific cultural situations. GroupLocated in northern India and continuously inhabited since the 6th century, Delhi is a city where past, present, and future meet. New Delhi is the capital of the world’s largest democracy, bringing together 15 million people from a rich array of ethnic, religious, economic, and cultural backgrounds.  
This program partners with Women’s Studies students and faculty at the Women's Studies Development Center (University of Delhi). UWEC students will study alongside Indian students as they learn about gender in relation to Indian law and public policy, and teams of students from both institutions will work together with local NGOs on projects in nearby communities. Field trips to explore the rich history and culture of the Delhi metro area and nearby Agra will take place on the weekends.
