WGS 401 The Role of Women in a Transforming Society (3) MPC

Review of current and historically significant feminist writings on the ways in which patriarchal structures of authority affect what students know about women’s experiences. Students position themselves as creators of knowledge about women’s experiences and as members of self-critical communities of activists who are transforming society and women’s positions in that society. Includes readings, discussions, and individual and group projects. Students learn to celebrate similarities in experiences and perspectives, and to understand and appreciate differences.

Prerequisite: WGS 201 and at least 12 semester hours in WGS courses, or permission of instructor.
