This guide is designed to be a starting point for your Gender Studies research. Gender Studies, as defined in World of Sociology is "an interdisciplinary approach to studying gender that considers the nature of gender, its social construction, why and how gender is important in different cultures, and the ramifications of gender at the institutional and individual levels."
Depending on your research topic you may need to consult subject pages in other disciplines, such as Anthropology, English, Government, and/or Biology.
