Important Databases for Gender Studies

[From Laura Micham's Guide] Because Women’s Studies is an interdisciplinary course of study, other subject areas within the interpretive social sciences, arts, and humanities such as anthropology, history, literature, and sociology may also have useful literature to offer. Guides for other subject areas and a list of librarians associated with these can be found on our Research by Subject page. For more help try our guide to Finding Journal and Magazine Articles or Ask a Librarian.
