Women's and Gender Studies

For more information and resources about women's and gender studies we recommend that check out these websites:


  • The Center for LGBTQ Studies (CLAGS), founded in 1991, is the first university-based research center in the United States dedicated to the study of historical, cultural, and political issues of vital concern to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals and communities.

American Women: A Gateway to the Library of Congress Resources

  • The site contains a slightly expanded and fully searchable version of the print publication American Women: A Library of Congress Guide for the Study of Women's History and Culture in the United States (Washington, D.C.: Library of Congress, 2001). The guide has been redesigned for online use, with added illustrations and links to existing digitized material located throughout the Library of Congress Website.

Feminist Majority Foundation

  • The Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF) was created to develop bold, new strategies and programs to advance women's equality, non-violence, economic development, and, most importantly, empowerment of women and girls in all sectors of society. All programs of the FMF endeavor to include a global perspective and activities to promote leadership development, especially among young women. Along with reproductive rights and access to reproductive technology, the FMF's programs have focused on the empowerment of women in law, business, medicine, academia, sports, and the Internet.

Institute for Women's Policy Research

  • "The Institute for Women's Policy Research (IWPR) is a public policy research organization dedicated to informing and stimulating the debate on public policy issues of critical importance to women and their families. IWPR focuses on issues of poverty and welfare, employment and earnings, work and family issues, the economic and social aspects of health care and domestic violence, and women's civic and political participation."

Feminist Criticism - Purdue Writing Lab

  • One-stop resource providing historical context, topics, and important figures of various feminist movements. 

The Womanity Project

  • The Womanity Project champions gender equality by using storytelling and improv to drive daring conversations around identity and inspire deeper human connections. Through our films, podcasts and workshops, we reflect on how we can find new ways of defining ourselves with others with fairness, dignity and respect.
