Women’s Studies Center


The mission of the Women’s Studies Center is to build a community that embraces diversity and inclusion and to advance gender equality.


The Women’s Studies Center is committed to creating a forum for scholars, activists and students for generating, collecting and communicating information on marginalized and vulnerable women who suffer from right violation, discrimination, illiteracy and domestic violence.


  • Address issues related to women in an academic setting, by conducting research and creating a database on the status of disadvantaged women in Northern Lebanon and other rural areas.
  • Publish a periodical and a semi-annual scholarly journal to educate and raise awareness about the struggles of women, specifically in conservative set-ups.
  • Promote the accumulation and dissemination of knowledge about women through lecture series and an annual conference.
  • Provide concerned authorities with pertinent information in an attempt to affect legislation equitably.
  • Provide the Ministry of Education with information that will allow revision of school textbooks to address existing misogynist narratives.
