SOC-376 Women and Social Action

Women and Social Action provides a cross-sectional analysis of women's lives through a social science perspective. Crucial to this course is the extent to which economic, cultural, and political platforms differentiate between men and women and perpetuate systems of inequity. To this end, this course will focus on several themes that are important for the understanding of women's past and current roles in modern society. Three of the themes that are indispensable include the changing role of women in the economy, both domestically and globally; the representation of women and women's interest in politics; and the extent to which young girls and women are influenced by media portrayals through various forms of popular culture.

Advisory: This is an upper-level course. Students should have knowledge equivalent to an introductory sociology course.
