Studies Research Resources - CSUN
Created by the CSUN Women's Studies librarian, Lynn Lampert,
this page will take students, particularly in the Feminist Theory and Methodology
course, to useful library resources that they can access at CSUN.
NWSA supports and promotes feminist/womanist teaching, learning, research, and professional and community service at the pre-K through post-secondary levels and serves as a locus of information about the inter-disciplinary field of Women's Studies for those outside the profession. NWSA publishes a newsletter NWSAction and other publications
Feminist Majority Foundation
The Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF), which was founded in
1987, is a cutting edge organization dedicated to women's equality, reproductive
health, and non-violence. In all spheres, FMF utilizes research and action to
empower women economically, socially, and politically. Our organization believes
that feminists - both women and men, girls and boys - are the majority, but
this majority must be empowered.
News and bulletins, resources and links, women's health info,
articles and speeches, women-owned businesses, and activism.
Quarterly journal of women's studies resources. This guide is
particularly oriented toward connecting Feminists who are Activists to resources
on the Internet which could be of use. I have tried, where available, to connect
people to other indexes about a particular topic of feminism, rather than to
the resources themselves
CSUN United for Peace
CSUN United for Peace and Justice (CSUNUPJ) is a working group
dedicated to the creation of a center for studies of peace and justice at California
State University, Northridge. The coalition includes more than 60 faculty members,
students, and members of the campus community at CSUN. The central mission of
CSUNUPJ is to facilitate discourse and analysis of social policies likely to
result in peaceful and just forms of human co-existence. CSUNUPJ provides interdisciplinary
resources for research and teaching of topics connected with racism; gender
and sexual discrimination; anti-immigrant bias; class; and current events, including
analyses of social conditions leading to war and other forms of collective violence.
CSUN United for Peace and Justice welcomes interaction with other academic departments
and organizations at California State University, Northridge and beyond.

Instant-Mix Imperial Democracy
FAIR, the national media watch group, has been offering well-documented criticism of media bias and censorship since 1986. We work to invigorate the First Amendment by advocating for greater diversity in the press and by scrutinizing media practices that marginalize public interest, minority and dissenting viewpoints. As an anti-censorship organization, we expose neglected news stories and defend working journalists when they are muzzled. As a progressive group, FAIR believes that structural reform is ultimately needed to break up the dominant media conglomerates, establish independent public broadcasting and promote strong non-profit sources of information.
