The Gender and Women Studies program has added a new Bachelor of Arts degree in Gender and Women Studies. The program is an interdisciplinary degree with courses offered in various disciplines, including Anthropology, English, History, Geography, Philosophy, and Sociology. The B.A. in Gender and Women Studies investigates the status and leadership of women, the construction of gender and sexualities, and feminist analysis of popular media and literary texts, often alongside another major.

Students who enroll in the program develop a diverse set of skills that speak to a growing multicultural and gender diverse society. Career paths include government and politics, business ownership, public administration and a host of careers that support gender justice.

A collaborative effort involving a member of the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy faculty is working to reduce Elder Abuse in Hawai’i, which saw a spike of 300 percent in the number of reported cases between 2008 and 2014.

Dr. Deborah Taira is part of the Honolulu Subarea Planning Council (HONSAC), which is working with Honolulu’s Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Scott Spallina and others.

Elder abuse is the mistreatment or neglect of an elderly person, usually by a relative or other caregiver and includes physical abuse, financial exploitation, emotional abuse, and sexual abuse. At greatest risk are the frail and/or isolated.

A cast of eleven performing arts majors and graduates join other UH Hilo students and a sprinkle of community performers in the contemporary musical, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change. The revue begins with a first date, then trudges through familiar scenarios like: ways of falling in love, settling into marriage, raising kids, managing family, and, finally, senior citizen wooing--all with a modern take and adult sensibility.

I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change will run for two weekends at the UH Hilo Performing Arts Center. Performance dates are Friday and Saturday, April 8, 9, 15, and 16, at 7:30 p.m. with matinee performances at 2:00 p.m. on April 10 and 17. Tickets can be purchased online at artscenter.uhh.hawaii.edu, or by calling the Performing Arts Center Box Office at 808-932-7490.
