This course provides an introduction to the feminist scholarship about women and gender. We explore how women’s lives differ across social categories such as race, class, sexual orientation, and age, with an emphasis on women in the United States today. Readings are drawn from both the humanities and social sciences to familiarize students with key questions, theoretical tools, and issues within Women’s Studies. A variety of topics are covered, including: violence against women; women and work; reproductive justice. The course grade is based on short written assignments, a group project, exams, and participation in discussion.
