Women’s Studies focuses on the roles, contributions, and experiences of women, past and present, recognizing women of all backgrounds as whole and productive human beings. Similarly, Gender Studies explores the social construction of gender in a variety of cultural contexts. It aims to improve understanding of the situations of both women and men, and to employ gender as a central category of analysis.
