- What is well-being and why is it important?
- What gender-specific barriers do women have to achieving the essential aspects of well-being, such as exercising regularly, financial security, career advancement, among others.
This course investigates the societal- and personal-level factors that foster or undermine women’s well-being and health. In lecture and discussion, we will pay particular attention to the influential roles of cultural norms, gender-specific roles, economic pressures, motivation, and goals.
This seminar builds on previous coursework by focusing more specifically on how to influence well-being throughout your life.
