The CWSE is a research centre at the University of Toronto, housed within OISE. Established in July 1983 to bring together feminist scholarship, teaching, and activism at OISE, the CWSE consists of faculty, staff, students, researchers, and educators at OISE, UofT, and the larger Toronto community. 

We are home to the annual International Women's Human Rights Education Institute, Resources for Feminist Research (the oldest feminist journal published in Canada) and the Dame Nita Barrow Distinguished Visitor Program, which each year, brings inspiring feminist activist from the majority world to teach at the UofT.  

We are committed to promoting, supporting, and enriching feminist work at OISE and UofT; and connecting scholarship, education, and activism through constructive and critical dialogues with feminist communities locally, nationally, and globally.
