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

Based on a response I got the last time I asked this question: I don't care about job prospects. I know that I can't get a job with this degree, which is why I already have another stable job lined up. I have a great trust fund and scholarships, so I have decided to go to college and major in something that I'm actually interested in. And as for the "man-hater" thing, I don't care. I've dealt with responses like those before, and I know I will inevitably deal with them again and I am prepared for that. I am not going to let prejudiced views from others change my opinions and interests. Besides, something such as that is just plain ignorance. 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.
