Search Tips & Terms

Combining subject and gender-specific terms in keyword searches is an effective way of retrieving research on women and LGBTQ+ people. Type in subject terms of interest and combine them with terms such as women, transgender people, or girls. For example, poverty AND (females OR women). We recommend you use several search strategies. Many terms describe research for which women and LGBTQ+ people and topics are the focus even though the word "woman," "gay teenager," etc is not stated explicitly, such as a dowry, midwives, coming out, and pregnancy.
