Centre for Women's Studies

Founded in 1984, the Centre for Women's Studies at York (CWS) is among the most well-established bases for feminist and gender-oriented teaching and research, both in the UK and internationally. We adopt a women-centred and interdisciplinary approach to the changing nature of both women's experiences and gender relations. By drawing on a range of disciplines - cultural studies, history, literature, philosophy, politics, sociology, social policy - we explore the differing perspectives each has to offer, as well as the creative tensions between them.
