Women’s Studies is the field of study that places women at the centre of inquiry. It developed out of a critique of phallocentric knowledge, which treats men’s experiences as central and representative of the universal.
The academic study of women and gender is often interdisciplinary, partly because of the questions it asks, which initially arose from feminist activism, not from any specific discipline.
Northern Lights College offers Introduction to Women’s Studies 100, which provides a progressive examination of the position of women in contemporary Canadian society.
