Among topics to be considered are participation in politics and the labor force, women's organizations and movements, the meaning of "feminism" in East Central Europe, reproductive rights, and violence against women. The course will consist of equal parts lecture and discussion. Requirements include one class presentation, a 5-7 page paper, and final exam.
