The First Shift Project

Feminist Collaborations about Women and Work

Go to the First Shift Project

The First Shift Project is a creation of my Women's Studies classes at Elmira College.

This year we'll be adding to the project again and our theme will be women in sports and outdoor recreation. Students will profile individual women, investigate related issues (such as Title IX, stereotypes of female athletes, women in coaching), and explore their own relationships with outdoor recreation. We're going to have a chance to do some hiking, paddling, geocaching, fly casting and fly tying, and may even do some camping. Our newest addition to the site will be published on the web in early June, 2006.
