Women’s affairs | Education homework help

Discuss why Women’s Studies emerged in the academic community. Refer to at least three learning resources assigned for this week in your response.

Some questions to consider (you do not need to answer all of these; they are here to help you get started on a response):

  • What need in the university does Women’s Studies seek to fulfill?
  • What need in society as a whole is Women’s Studies responding to? Specifically at the time Women’s Studies emerged in the late 1960s and 1970s? Today?
  • How has Women’s Studies changed the way we think about academic research? The world?
  • What is the value of Women’s Studies for students, scholars, and universities? 
  • How does the scholarship produced in Women’s Studies affect (or potentially affect) our world outside the university?
  • Why are Women’s Studies programs inherently interdisciplinary? Mention one discipline that seems especially influential within Women’s Studies, and tell us why.
  • What does it mean to “claim” an education? How is this concept about more than simply becoming educated or earning a degree? Why is this a particularly useful concept for understanding the role of Women’s Studies in the university?
