This course will serve as an examination of women and politics from three different perspectives: local, national, and global. The class examines a broad range of women’s issues. The course will enable students to analyze the formation of gender identity in relation to identities based on race, class, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, culture, etc. The class will also consider women as they have been defined throughout time by a society based on men’s ideas of women. This class will focus heavily on women’s activism and resistance as understood through a feminist lens.
