In this issue, among the items in the Graduate Women's Studies feature, you will find two M.A. programs at British universities. This is not an accident, but an illustration of the growth of women's studies around the globe. During March, I traveled for two weeks in a crammed visit to women's studies programs, scholars, and research centers in Oxford, London, Paris, and Rome. Perhaps because the unemployment of women academics is a serious problem, research seems more important than teaching, especially in a university context, where graduate scholarship in women's studies is helping Europeans to flesh out the history and contemporary experience of women's lives. The major areas and interdisciplinary approaches are familiar: the family and work. I will report on this visit in detail later.
