Foreword of supplement states "When in March last year we produced what has now become the first edition of the bibliography on Women's Studies, we were not prepared for the overwhelming response due to the growing interest in Women's Studies. As a result we hve been encouraged to produce a second edition". In 1976/77, 65% of all undergraduate sociology students, and just under half of all postgraduate sociology students were female. Women's studies courses in mainstream higher education were typically held in the Social sciences departments, as they first were in 1976 at Goldsmiths College. These pioneering individual courses on undergraduate degree programmes focused on research and scholarship 'on women by women for women'. They had developed nationally from the early 1970s, with 'Women and Society' as a popular title. Feminist theories in literary studies,history, psychology, family work & law were among the areas being developed by the academics for these courses. The first named women's studies degree programme in the UK was the MA in Women's Studies which did not start until 1980 at the University of Kent at Canterbury. This is a significant item of early Women's Studies ephemera. No copies located in any institutional libraries. Bookseller Inventory # 4357
