  • Knowledge of social workings of power, privilege and oppression across human cultures and in human interactions with the natural world.
  • Creative and critical thinking informed by feminist perspectives.
  • Effective communication including feminist language to question and explain oppressions, privilege, and patriarchy.
  • Individual and social responsibility to effect change that promotes social justice.
  • Respect for and understanding of diverse communities and global perspectives.
