  • the contributions and status of women and LGBTQ+ people;
  • understandings of love and sexuality in relationships;
  • the dynamics of sex roles and gender ideals, past and present;
  • and the impact of race, ethnicity, age, social class, sexual orientation, ability, and other factors on women's experiences and the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer+ (LGBTQ+) people.
