Prerequisite: Any 100-level anthropology, economics, history, political science, psychology, or sociology course; or permission of the instructor.
This course is designed for anyone interested in a better understanding of what it means to be male or female in societies, past and present, in the U.S. and around the world. Some topics to be explored include the transformation of gender roles; women’s rights in education and at the workplace; the problems of rape and domestic violence; gender in politics, the military, and religion; the impact of gender on intimate relationships such as love, sexuality, friendship, marriage and family; the nature of sexual orientation and the problem of homophobia; and the global struggle for human rights of women and gays. Interrelationships of gender, sexual orientation, social class, race and ethnicity will be studied as an integral aspect of the course. The class format varies - lecture, discussion, films, and speakers.
