Gender Studies: Reference

A list of information resources for gender studies classes.

Reference sources (subject encyclopedias, dictionaries, almanacs, atlases) give concise introductions to topics and can be an excellent starting point for information.

Use them to: 1) explore topics for research, 2) get background information, and 3) explain unfamiliar ideas and terminology
