This course explores some of the major issues that affect women around the world. It focuses on the global labor force, reproductive rights, gay and lesbian politics, sexual identity, and education in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the United States. Students will learn how women's experiences affect law and politics and how local conditions (here and elsewhere) intersect with global concerns and movements. Particular emphasis will be placed on goals and accomplishments of women's grassroots
activism in many cultures.
201 fulfills a "Non-Western Heritage" and "Pluralism and Diversity" requirement.
