The Importance of Women's Studies in Today's Curriculum.
McGowan, Marcia P.
Information is presented on issues being debated by women's studies scholars such as the possibility and advisability of curriculum integration as regards women's studies. Some believe that the focus on integration is premature, that women's studies scholars are trying to do too much too soon. Others are pursuing curriculum integration vigorously and with some success. The current directions of women's studies within academia are also discussed, and various strategies for change are suggested. These strategies include core curriculum revision, hiring feminist faculty and administrators committed to the ideal of gender balancing the curriculum, and faculty development efforts. Various models for change developed by individual schools and institutions also are discussed. (JB)
