    Description: GenderWatch is a full-text database of publications that focus on the impact of gender across a broad spectrum of subject areas.

The database provides in-depth coverage of the subjects that are uniquely central to women, including family, childbirth, birth control, daycare, domestic abuse, the workplace, sexual harassment, aging, aging parents, body image, eating disorders and social and societal roles. It also includes content on the impact of gender and gender roles on areas such as: the arts, popular culture and media, business and work, crime and criminology, education, research and scholarship, family, health care and medicine, politics, policy and legislation, pornography, religion, sexuality and sexology, sports and leisure. GenderWatch contains archival material, in some cases as far back as 1970 with additional archival material continually added, making this the repository of an important historical perspective on the evolution of the rights of women and the changes in gender roles and understandings over the last fifteen to twenty years. NOTE: Despite the publisher's claim of all full-text, journals published by Haworth are not complete, most issues having only abstracts (summaries), not complete articles.
