The course will examine gender inequality from an intersectional perspective, emphasizing the interrelated circumstances that influence women's status in popular culture, in the workforce, in the arts, before the law, in the family, and in other social, political, and economic realms of society. Students will strive to understand women's diverse histories and experiences, while at the same time seeking to understand how their own histories have shaped who they are and how they view the world.
