Section Information for Spring 2021
This course examines historical and contemporary accounts of women's participation in paid and unpaid labor. Course literature explores how race, class, region, ethnicity, and immigration experience inform ideologies regarding women’s roles and relationship to work, and the extent to which these ideologies are affected by structural changes in the economy across different historical periods. The course will reveal the relationship between the public and private spheres by exploring the ways they are gendered and inform one another. The primary and secondary labor markets are analyzed in order to understand such phenomena as occupational sex segregation, sexual harassment, and the glass ceiling/ inequality regimes, as well as the role of race/ethnicity, class, citizenship and education in determining women's opportunities and their value as workers and as family providers.
WMST 307 DL1 is a distance education section. Students will be expected to meet synchronously during the scheduled times.
