Women’s and Gender studies includes many topics such as feminist theory and methods; gender, identity and sexuality; legal rights and human rights, including international human rights in theory and practice; gender sensitive policy-making and implementation; reproductive rights and women’s health including violence against women; gender and sexuality studies, and the intersectionality of race, class and gender. The Women’s and Gender Studies Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Women’s and Gender Studies scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
WGSRN brings together interdisciplinary research on women and gender from a variety of fields including economics, international relations, political science and social movements, psychology, geography, law, health, history, arts, culture, and the natural sciences.
