Just to comment on the original topic, it doesn't strike me as all that useful. There are some fields where it would help, but I suspect the number of jobs in those fields are quite limited. I would suggest looking into any job that makes use of the degree (if gender studies doesn't turn up many results, look at women's studies, which is often a similar degree). See if you would want to work at any of those jobs and start volunteering/interning at one at the same time you go for your degree.
If you don't want any of those jobs, that's fine. Intellectual development isn't a bad thing. But you should probably expect to get a job that doesn't have much to do with your education, like selling insurance.
