Appalachian State University Women’s Studies Program was founded in 1976 and is the second oldest program in the state. It provides academic leadership to the community for the study of women’s and gender issues, and gender/feminist/womanist theories. This leadership finds expression both in the classroom as well as in a variety of other venues. In order to accomplish this mission, the program offers a new approach to traditional academic disciplines by incorporating the study and contribution of women; an interdisciplinary model of scholarship constructed around women’s and gender issues as well as gender/feminist/womanist theories; an open atmosphere for the exchange of ideas and expressions of concern over a wide range of women’s and gender issues on our campus and in our society. The Appalachian State Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies allows students to seek training at the graduate level in women’s studies and get formal recognition for completing this training successfully.

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
