Selected List of Women's Studies Resources on the Internet


King, Alyson, Resources for Feminist Research


Resources for Women's Studies on the Internet are increasing steadily. Both mailing lists (listservs or discussion groups) and websites can provide valuable information and support on almost any topic. The following list is far from exhaustive, but it will provide a starting point for exploring Women's Studies resources (and other things of interest) on the Internet. Most sites contain links to other related web pages, but many also include articles and documents, in full or excerpted. Some site titles are self-explanatory, hence little or no annotation is provided. Most of these sites are American, but I have tried to include as many Canadian ones as I could find. At the time of writing, these sites were all active; however, websites often disappear without notice.
