The Gender Research Institute (GRID) encourages, facilitates, and showcases gender-related research, teaching, and social engagement that address why the 21st century is still a time profoundly structured by gender, racial, ethnic, sexual, and economic inequality.
GRID is a meeting ground where researchers, teachers, students, outreach professionals, and scholar-activists from across the globe come together to study, debate, and translate intellectual discussion and practical experience into projects of social justice on a multitude of local, national, and international scales.

The installation features Dartmouth women who have come forward to share their own experiences and raise awareness on sexual assault. Click here for more information.
