Women's studies is the educational strategy of a breakthrough in consciousness and knowledge. The uniqueness of women's studies has been its refusal to accept sterile divisions between academy and community, between the growth of the mind and the health of the body, between intellect and passion, between the individual and society.

Women's studies, then, is equipping women not only to enter society as whole and productive human beings, but to transform it....

The National Women's Studies Association actively supports and promotes feminist education, and supports all feminists involved in that effort, at every educational level and in every educational setting.
