#119 – The Conceptual Academic Field of Study

We all know about that ridiculous paper that was published by a pair of so called skeptics in a pay-to-play journal. We’re not going to spend a ton of time because people have already done a pretty swell job of that.
What we will talk about is the field of gender studies itself. What is Gender Studies? Why should people outside of academia care about it? What practical good has it done in public policy and for the lives of real people?
