The Angela Jeannet Award for Excellence in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies 

The Angela Jeannet Award is given in honor of  Charles A. Dana Professor Emerita Angela Jeannet, who taught at F&M from 1963 until her retirement in 1996.

Professor Jeannet was responsible for adding the Italian Studies and Francophone programs to the college curriculum. In 1972, she organized and co-taught the first Women's Studies class, which was followed by the development of a program in Women's Studies. She organized and participated in many Women's Studies Colloquia for a consortium of colleges (Dickinson, Franklin & Marshall, and Wilson), and contributed to the foundation of the campus Women's Center. In 1970, she founded the Lancaster Women's Liberation Group and co-founded the Lancaster Women's Center, which engaged in numerous feminist causes through specific task forces. Professor Jeannet is a poet and a writer of fiction.

The Jeannet Award is given to a WGSS major or minor who exhibits intellectual achievement and has made a positive contribution to the feminist dialogue on campus.
