Administrative history

In the 1970s, a few pioneers women from various disciplines such as English, History, French Letters, Psychology, Political Science, Religious Studies and Sociology developed the first courses dealing with women's issues at the University of Ottawa. In the 1980s, a coordinating committee made up of professors and students from the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Social Sciences developed the framework for a program in Women's Studies. In 1983, the creation of a bilingual program in Women's Studies was officially approved by the Senate. The program is offered at the undergraduate level and is attached to the Office of the Vice-President, Academic. In 1985, the Department of the Secretary of State granted a Joint Chair in Women's Studies at the Universities of Ottawa and Carleton. In 1995, a fully bilingual, multidisciplinary program in Women's Studies at the Master's level was established. The objective of the program is to combine graduate studies in a particular discipline with the feminist approach and issues developed in Women's Studies. In 1999, the Women's Studies Institute replaced the Women's Studies program. In 2004, the Women's Studies Institute was transferred to the administration of the Faculty of Social Sciences. In 2014, the Women's Studies Institute becomes the Institute of Women's and Gender Studies.

Dans les années 1980, un comité de coordination constitué de professeures et d’étudiantes de la Faculté des arts et de la Faculté des sciences sociales, conçoit le canevas d’un programme en études des femmes. En 1983, la création d’un programme bilingue en études des femmes est approuvée officiellement par le Sénat. Le programme est offert au niveau du premier cycle et rattaché au cabinet du vice-recteur aux études. En 1985, le Secrétariat d’État accorde une Chaire conjointe en études des femmes aux Universités d’Ottawa et de Carleton. En 1995, un programme pluridisciplinaire entièrement bilingue en études des femmes au niveau de la maîtrise est mis en place. L’objectif du programme est de combiner des études de deuxième cycle dans une discipline particulière avec l’approche féministe et les problématiques développées en études des femmes. En 1999, l’Institut d’études des femmes remplace le programme en études des femmes. En 2004, l’Institut d’études des femmes passe sous l’administration de la Faculté des sciences sociales. En 2014, l'Institut d'études des femmes devient l'Institut d'études féministes et de genre. (Source : https://sciencessociales.uottawa.ca/etudes-feministes-genre/institut-bref/chemin-parcouru )
