Women’s Studies Resources
- Women’s Studies/Women’s Issues Resource Sites:
Maintained by Joan Korenman at the University of Maryland, this is “the grandmother of all Women’s Studies websites,” meaning the largest, oldest collection of gender-related information on the continent, if not on the Web altogether. We’ve linked here first to the scholarly resources page, but we also recommend her list of Programs in Feminist and/or Women’s Studies, the National Center for Women & Information Technology, Financial Aid & Job Resources, and various other subsites.
- University of Wisconsin—The Women’s Studies Librarian:
An excellent site with a nationally comprehensive bibliography on gender issues. If it’s printed, or it’s online, you’ll find it indexed here. Highly recommended for undergraduate researchers.
- Sisterhood is Global Institute:
This is an international NGO with Consultative Status to the United Nations, founded in 1984. The site offers a global compendium of international organizations focusing on gender issues, sources for service-oriented organizations, and many other valuable resources.
