Publication and Resource Collection


The University of the Philippines Center for Women’s and Gender Studies (UPCWGS) has one regular publication, the Review of Women’s Studies (RWS). The RWS is a peer-reviewed journal with international readership. It features empirical studies, research reports, essays, interviews, fiction, poetry, and visual arts.

The Center also publishes two occasional publications, launched in 2011 and 2016, respectively: the UPCWS Occasional Papers and Monographs Series and the Kasarian: Occasional Papers on Sex and Gender.

In the past years, the Center has produced over a hundred books, journal issues, primers, and advocacy materials now widely used in the University and in other schools here and abroad as well as in policy and program development of government agencies and non-governmental organizations.

Resource Collection

The UPCWGS Library has a collection of books, research papers, video materials, and documentary films on women’s and gender studies for classroom teaching and gender sensitivity seminars and workshops.

In the mid-2000s, the UCWS spearheaded the creation of a regional information resource e-facility for women in local government with the support of UNESCAP.
