E-Sources on Women & Gender


Lehman, JoAnne, Feminist Collections: A Quarterly of Women's Studies Resources


Our website (http://womenst.library.wisc.edu/) includes recent editions of this column and links to complete back issues of Feminist Collections, plus many bibliographies, a database of women-focused videos, and links to hundreds of other websites by topic.

Information about electronic journals and magazines, particularly those with numbered or dated issues posted on a regular schedule, can be found in our "Periodical Notes" column.

BLOGS

LESBOPROF is "a lesbian, an academic, a former and future administrator, and a longtime partner--childless not by choice," and she's on sabbatical, but you needn't fit any of those labels to appreciate her incisive blog posts at http://lesboprof.blogspot.com/. Highly recommended: her July 13, 2010, column, "Teaching (about) religion: A reflection in MANY parts," which does not push any party line but raises numerous useful questions.

ULTRAVIOLET (http://youngfeminists.wordpress.com/) "features a community of young feminists blogging on the various issues, challenges, and triumphs that affect women in India today. It is an initiative by Hengasara Hakkina Sangha, a women's rights organization in Bangalore, India, which works in the areas of gender, law and rights." The most recent post is an engaging commentary on why Elizabeth Gilbert's memoirs should not be entirely dismissed as chick-lit.

It's a blog--it's a research tool--it's another brainchild of librarian/historian Ken Middleton: WOMEN'S HISTORY SOURCES: NEW AND NOTABLE PRIMARY SOURCES IN ARCHIVES, HISTORIC SITES AND MUSEUMS, AND LIBRARIES at http://womenshistorysources.blogspot.com/ has almost twenty contributors and forty-some posts to date. The entry for September 5, 2010, features digitized sources from Haverford and Swarthmore Colleges that will support an international conference on "Quakers and Slavery"

E-DOCUMENTS

Might the push for legal recognition for same-sex marriage not actually be a progressive movement? You can ponder that idea by reading BEYOND SAME-SEX MARRIAGE: A NEW STRATEGIC VISION FOR ALL OUR FAMILIES AND RELATIONSHIPS, a statement developed by "a diverse group of nearly twenty LGBT and queer activists," at http://beyondmarriage.org.

DUAL-CAREER ACADEMIC COUPLES: WHAT UNIVERSITIES NEED TO KNOW (Clayman Institute for Gender Research, 2008) is available as a PDF document from http://www.stanford.edu/group/gender/ResearchPrograms/DualCareer. The 98-page report by Londa Schiebinger, Andrea Davies Henderson, and Shannon K. Gilmartin has three parts: "Partnering Patterns in the Academic Workforce," "Academic Couples: Career Paths and Priorities," and "University Programs, Policies, `and Practices: How to Maximize Options?"

How do tsunamis, earthquakes, and hurricanes affect women differently than men, and how can humanitarian organizations take those differences into account in their responses to disasters? Chaman Pincha and her research team looked at the "gender differential impacts" of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami and produced a 129-page "toolkit for practitioners" titled GENDER SENSITIVE DISASTER MANAGEMENT for Oxfam America and NANBAN Trust (2008). Available in PDF from the Association for Women's Rights in Development: http://www.awid.org/eng/Issues-and-Analysis/Library/Gender-Sensitive-Disaster-Management-A-ToolkitTor-Practitioners
