WGST: Getting Started


This guide will help get you started doing research in Women's and Gender Studies (WGST).  WGST is an interdisciplinary subject area that enables students to pursue studies focusing on gender and women's issues.  There are four broad streams that holistically make up WGST: Women and Science, Women and Health, Gender and Sexuality, and Feminist Theorizing and Global Feminisms.
