Topics are presented in lecture format and lively discussions are encouraged. A variety of resources—books, articles, movies, blogs and other sources, including the personal stories of participants enliven and enrich classroom interactions. At the end of the course, students will be able to describe the background and the effects of historical and contemporary thinking on present day issues. Students will be able to propose solutions to current social conditions that adversely affect women based on what they have learned. No textbook will be assigned.
