Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Guide for the Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies program.

Gender Balance Assessment Tool

Women are cited less often than men, and are also underrepresented in syllabi. Scholars may find that they have difficulty assessing how gender-balanced their bibliographies and syllabi really are. Use this tool to automatically evaluate the (probabilistic) gender of each name and then providing an estimate of what percentage of the authors on a syllabus are women.
