Concordia professor seeks to define, design North America’s first feminist university

March 10, 2016

Simone de Beauvoir Institute Principal Kimberley Manning says that a truly feminist university “places social justice at the centre of its mission and practice,” and lays out her goals for integrating “feminist ethos and practice into the Concordia community at large.” In an interview, Manning discusses the context of such a university in Canada today and the impact it could have on students. She explains that a feminist university would pride itself on improving access to undergraduate education, working to “rectify institutional inequities,” and aiding other institutions “similarly striving to rectify historical injustices."
