Women's Well-Being 2002: An Odyssey of Mind, Body & Soul


Selected Bibliographies compiled for the University of South Carolina
Fifteenth Annual Women's Studies Conference, February 28 - March 1, 2002

There are hundreds of web sites added each month. There is information on almost everything. Some of it is useful, some of it misleading, and some just for pure enjoyment. For this web bibliography I've tried to find some sites that will compliment the theme for this year's conference and some sites just for fun. Since web sites can be very fleeting, as soon as any list is published, the URL or web address may be taken down and the information will no longer be available at the address given. Web Browsers can be helpful in finding the new address or ones of equal value.
