  Women's studies courses 10 December 2004  
Do they need to move on?

Are falling numbers of undergraduates choosing Women's Studies as an option and does this signal the end for a subject that women academics fought so long and hard to be taught in universities?

Martha asks Professor Clare Hemmings, co-chair of the Feminism and Women's Studies Network, and Professor David Conway, senior research fellow at Civitas, if the demise of Women's Studies is inevitable?
