Primary Instructor:

  • 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.

Intended Audience:

Upper-level Women's Studies concentrators and Gender and Health minors.
