Perspective on Women

A new project designed to integrate gender and women studies in teaching, research, curriculum development and training is underway at the Beatrice M. Bain Research Group and the Institute for International Studies.

The program, supported by a recent $150,000 grant from the Ford Foundation, could have a significant impact on curriculum at Berkeley by promoting a gender-based perspective in undergraduate, professional and graduate education, say its sponsors.

The grant will also promote training for graduate students on campus, as well as research opportunities, in international gender studies.

The project, International Gender Systems in Comparative Perspective, will run through mid-1998.
