Course Description

Credits: 3.00

This interdisciplinary course provides an introduction to women’s and gender studies. Significant historical developments of the women’s movement are presented as well as the different theoretical feminist perspectives to explain and challenge the gendered nature of social relations. Through the exploration of texts and social issues, learners use an intersectional approach to critically analyze women’s lives in differing social locations based on, but not limited to, race/ethnicity, religion, class, age, sexuality, and ability.
