What is the best college/university at which to major in women's/gender studies?

The stereotype that people who identify as feminists/major in women's studies are men-haters stems from a few extremists who give the whole group a bad name (which happens in every group, really, whether it be religious, political, etc.), and I personally would not want to be friends with nor even associate with people who are so uneducated as to believe that, and I certainly do not value their opinions of me.
