Subject guide for Women and Gender Studies


Welcome to the Pollak Library's Subject Guide for Women and Gender Studies! 

This guide was created to introduce you to some of the resources, searching techniques, and research methods that are important in the field of Women's and Gender Studies (WGS). If you are new to this subject, check out the Feminist Research Methods page to get an overview of the steps of conducting research through the gender/sexuality/feminist lens, and learn how these methods can help you become a well-rounded researcher. 

This guide is a living document that I update frequently with new resources, strategies, and information.

Guide Limitations

WGS is an interdisciplinary topic, which means that information relevant to your research may come from a number of other research areas like history, education, media studies, public health, etc. Any topic that you choose to examine through the lens of gender/sexuality/feminism is research in the WGS field, but the best source for your research may not be on this guide.
