The growth and development of Women’s Studies courses have been a fairly recent phenomenon and it is difficult to be sure just how much activity is going on. There have been few statistical studies which have outlined the growth of Women’s Studies generally, and no comprehensive surveys or reports to establish the breadth and depth of teaching and research related to women. In 1974 the Feminist Press in America produced ‘Who’s Who and Where in Women’s Studies’, and listed 4,658 Women’s Studies courses taught by 2,964 teachers. In Britain The Women’s Research and Resources Centre produced a guide to Women’s Studies courses in the UK in 1981. It is by no means comprehensive, and is concerned more to indicate the kinds of courses that are happening, rather than quantify the extent of the development.
