Welcome to the Centre for Feminist Research

The Centre for Feminist Research/ Le centre de recherches féministes promotes feminist activities and collaborative research at York University and works to establish research linkages between York scholars and local, national, international and transnational communities. Feminist research is conceived of in broad terms, as being concerned with issues of  women, gender, class, ‘race’, sexuality, ability and feminism.
