WGS 101 Introduction to Women's Studies

This course introduces students to feminist theory and scholarship and to methodologies commonly employed in the interdisciplinary field of Women's and Gender Studies. Attention is focused on how gender -- together with class, race, religion, age, and sexual orientation -- shapes institutions, cultural ideologies, public policy, and the lives and experiences of individual women and men.
