The Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender and Women's Studies is named to honor Susan B. Anthony, the nineteenth-century suffragist who led a successful campaign to have women admitted to the University of Rochester in 1900. The Institute is dedicated to addressing curricular and scholarly issues important for understanding the role of women and gender throughout history and in contemporary society. The Institute is supported by over one hundred faculty associates who represent a broad range of disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.
