Women represent roughly half of the global population*, but are often not centered in political or economic discourse, or historically, in any field of academic study. Women's Studies aims to resolve this tension between representation and scholarly inquiry: this guide provides a brief overview of key areas of focus, bibliographic tools, and other ways to delve into gender(ed) aspects of our world.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out directly - contact info for your friendly Women & Gender Studies librarian is on the right-hand side of this page.
