As an organization that promotes research on gender and marginalized groups in Russia, the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia, AWSS supports work that will create a more equitable and humane world through our scholarship, teaching, service, and ways of life. It is in this spirit that we have issued a series of letters in response to developments in our field and beyond that concern not only the scholars we represent, but also our students, colleagues, and institutions. Around the world, the social conditions for those who identify as women or LGBTQIA are inextricably tied with race, socioeconomic status, and social location. Thus, we have an interest in making a commitment to challenging sexist, homophobic, transphobic, racist, classist, and ableist structures that reproduce injustice. On this page you will find our statements on these issues in response to current events or developments in our field.
