WS 101 Introduction to Women’s Studies

Credit Hours: 3

This course explores the dramatic changes in our society as women have moved into career areas and political offices once almost exclusively male. Students will analyze the impact of changing gender roles on their sense of personal identity, their families, educational institutions, the workplace, and the civic and political world. The course will focus on the diversity of women’s experience in our society and on feminist thinking and activism from the 1960s to the present day. The course is interdisciplinary in nature; readings will be drawn from the academic areas of psychology, social thought, educational theory, political theory and cultural studies.
