What is Women's Studies?
Women’s Studies is a multidisciplinary field which looks at women’s roles, contributions and impact on society, as well as women's relationships to issues and institutions by emphasizing cultural, racial, and economic diversity.
Women’s Studies expands awareness of women’s changing social roles nationally and internationally.Both analytical and critical approaches are applied to understanding the situations of women. This examination is approached from multiple perspectives, including fields such as history, economics, arts, literature and sciences. In all these fields, Women’s Studies also examines the findings of research on women, the processes used to secure those findings, how they are used, and the resulting effects.
