SO 331 - Women in Global Economy


Credits: 3
A comparative analysis of women's roles in the global economy. The course examines how global economic transformations affect women as well as how women affect those processes. Topics include the effect of economic development on women's participation in various forms of economic activity, including agriculture, microenterprises, and manufacturing, as well as gender relations in families throughout the world, with particular emphasis on countries of the Southern Hemisphere. In addition, the course considers the environmental issues women face during the process of economic development, such as sustainable development, population policies, and women's environmental activism.
Prerequisites: one gateway course (SO 101 or SO 201 or SO 202 or SO 203 or SO 204 or GW 101 or IA 101) and one additional course in sociology or gender studies.
