Course Overview

Women’s studies scholars and activists in women’s issues have made it their work to examine the genesis, development, and impact of assumptions about women’s nature. These assumptions underlie the belief systems and institutional practices of all cultures and have justified oppressions of women that interact in complex ways with class, racial and other oppressions. This interdisciplinary course is designed to open the field of Women’s Studies to introductory level students. It will demonstrate how addressing questions from an interdisciplinary perspective can lead to complex understanding of the place of women in contemporary society.
