SOC-376 Women and Social Action

This course examines participation in collective action and social movements by women and girls as a way to better understand contemporary social life. Social movements organized around gender issues and identities are important sources of social change in modern societies around the world. Women and Social Action analyzes the dynamics of women's collective action and movement activism, both locally and globally. Students pay close attention to the role of organizations, resources, leadership, strategies, and broader social currents: political, economic, and historical. The course has a special focus on mobilization by women of color in the United States and grassroots organizing by gender activists in the Global South.

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