Welcome to the guide for Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies!
I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty in GSW.
I am available for instruction to all levels of GSW courses, and welcome the opportunity to do so! Please contact me if you would like to schedule a session. I am also available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to GSW.

The program has four main aims:
In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program, its faculty come from many departments in the university, including: African American Studies; Anthropology; Art History; Classical & Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures; Communication; Criminal Justice; English; History; Philosophy; Psychology; Social Work; and Sociology.
The GSW Program offers both an undergraduate major (32 credits) and a minor (18 credits).
