Search Terms

When looking for books that have to do with women's studies, these are some search terms you might try:

  • feminism
  • gender studies
  • women's studies

Another strategy would be appending searches with 'and gender' or 'and women' to find relevant materials.

For instance, if looking for work at the intersection of religious studies and gender studies you might search:

religion AND women (or) religion AND gender
