This research guide is designed to support WMS classes and those doing gender studies research at CSUDH.
Our librarians have developed this research guide to introduce students at CSUDH to some of the resources, tools, and methods which are useful for researching in the discipline of Women's Studies. If you are new to this subject, check out the Background Research page to learn more about how to get started conducting research in this field.

Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary field which means that while researchers in Women's Studies bring their own disciplinary lens to their research, they also draw upon the work of researchers in many different areas. Likewise, any topic from other disciplines can be examined through the lens of gender/sexuality/feminism. Like all academic work, research in Women's Studies can both problematize and reflect the racial, ethnic, religious, gender, and other forms of oppression present in our world and in the structures of academia. In this guide I try to present resources and tools which reflect the diversity of research in this field. However, if you don't see what you need here please reach out to me for assistance- my contact info is in the box just above this!
