SO 316 - Women in Modern Society


Credits: 3
An examination of the effects of the social construction of gender on women in modern societies. The course analyzes the intersection of race, class, and gender in women’s lives. The changing social status of women in the United States today is compared to that of women in other countries. Particular contemporary women’s issues emphasized each year may vary, but typically include economic issues, such as occupational segregation and unequal pay, family issues, such as power relations and violence, and political issues, such as women’s grassroots political activism and national policies.
Prerequisites: one gateway course (SO 101 or SO 201 or SO 202 or SO 203 or SO 204 or GW 101) and one additional course in sociology or gender studies.
