Women's, Gender & Feminist Studies

In 1970, the field of women’s, gender and feminist studies was launched and was able to thrive in the ensuing years. NCRW was established in 1982 to create a supportive network for the burgeoning women’s research movement. Today, there are more than 900 women’s studies programs in the US with more than 10,000 courses offered on college campuses. Much of the curriculum is interdisciplinary and, in many instances, mainstreamed across subject areas. From the social sciences to liberal arts, fine arts and the sciences, feminist theory and framing (especially the intersection of race, gender and class) is having an important impact across disciplines in academia and beyond.

Women in Fund Management: A Road Map for Achieving Critical Mass — and Why it Matters

For more than a quarter century, the National Council for Research on Women, now Re:Gender, has promoted the advancement of women and girls and highlighted the benefits of women’s participation, active engagement and leadership in decision-making. In this project, the Council brings this same lens to the historically male-dominated spaces of fund management and the financial services more broadly.

Our report, Women in Fund Management: A Road Map for Achieving Critical Mass – and Why it Matters, explores the under-representation of women in the field, draws on research suggesting the benefits women can bring, and lays out concrete action steps for change. Specifically, we call on the financial services industry to develop a “critical mass principle” with quantifiable benchmarks and guidelines for increasing the number of women at all leadership levels.
