Summary

This paper argues that gender/women's studies are becoming an essential element of research and curricula in a number of disciplines. Several scholars of gender who conduct research in various disciplines are mentioned, and their areas of work are briefly outlined: Kate Millett, Shulamith Firestone, Simone de Beauvoir, Anne Oakley, Nancy Chodorow, Dorothy Dinnerstein, and Carol Gilligan. Points about gender-balancing the curriculum, written by Peggy Macintosh, Associate Director of the Wellesley College Center for Research on Women, are summarized: (1) a candidate for a higher education position who is incompetent in scholarship on women is a poor candidate for several decades of tenure; (2) the time is past for the objection that Women's Studies is political; a curriculum that leaves women out is also highly politicized; and (3) an inclusive curriculum stands to benefit, and to change, men as well as women. She argues that our collective human survival depends on different processes from the ones set in motion in the past, and that no investment that colleges and universities can now make bears more importantly on both individual and collective human futures than does that of transforming the curriculum. A 44-item bibliography is provided. (SD)
