Publication and Resource Collection


The UPCWGS has two regular publications: the Pananaw and the Review of Women’s Studies (RWS). The Pananaw is a newsletter on gender-related activities within and outside the University System, while the Review of Women’s Studies is a peer-reviewed journal with international readership. It features empirical studies, research reports, essays, interviews, fiction, poetry and visual art.

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 last 29 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The Center has a collection of research papers – published and unpublished – video materials and documentary films on women’s studies for classroom teaching and gender sensitivity seminars and workshops.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.
