Section Information for Spring 2021

This course explores a variety of issues around the world to assess their impact on women’s lives, experiences, and opportunities.  Women’s issues or explored in local, comparative and transnational contexts.  The materials in this course draw from a wide variety of disciplines including gender studies, legal studies, labor studies, sociology, anthropology, history, governance, economics and feminist theory.  The course takes an intersectional approach to the study of global issues by examining how differently situated women are affected by and help to shape and contest structural, political and cultural systems that largely define women as mothers and wives and sources of cheap labor.  While noting general commonalities in women’s experiences, the course pays close attention to the ways that stratifications of class, race, gender, ethnicity, religion, and sexuality produce different levels of inequality among women and men.  

WMST 640 DL1 is a distance education section. Students will be required to meet virtually during scheduled meeting times.
