ASK: American colleges that support feminism?

Could you list some colleges that would be great for girls? I’m trying to find colleges that support feminism. I would like to find a college that encourages girls. I live in Colorado U.S. but I’m open to other states aside from Colorado. Thank you so much! /xx♥

Because I live in England, I don’t know that much about American colleges… apart from the fact that the American education system seems to be so much better than over here - there’s hardly ANY feminist/gender studies courses over here.

But I did find this helpful list on the Smith College website (which I know is a good women’s college in MA actually!) of different gender/feminist studies courses offered around the US: http://www.smith.edu/swg/graduate.php 

American followers - got any good college suggestions??

  10. thecatinglasses said: I second the Smith recommendation, but I’m a little biased (class of 2007). I would look into any of the women’s colleges & Sarah Lawrence and Vassar. Also, find out where writers you like went to school. You can message me for my email, for more advice.
  11. katiecrutchfeels said: I’m in the feminist studies program at UCSC and we’re one of the oldest in the States, the class I’m in right now focuses a lot on intersectionality, and the community in general tends to be feminist-leaning and fairly open minded.
