Overview

Papers of the Oxford University Women's Studies Committee and Oxford Women Tutors Group, 1984-2017.

Biographical / Historical

The Oxford University Women's Studies Committee was established in 1971 to promote the recognision and promulgation of women studies and the roles of women in various walks of life. It was founded thanks to a personal gift from Dr Keith Hope and was later financed by a grant from the Ford Foundation and small regular royalties. The Oxford University Women Tutors Group seems to be a sub-group of the Studies Committee.

The main objectives of the organisations included: establishing a network for graduate students; organising graduate students seminars; improving holdings for Women's Studies at Oxford libraries; networking with Women's Studies centres in other universities, both UK and abroad; fundraising for a Women's Studies Research Centre in Oxford; working on curriculum development. A major success of the groups was the formation of the MSt Women's Studies course at the Univerrsity of Oxford.
