HIST 245 Global Women's Activism

Credits: 3
Prerequisites: none

This course examines how women all over the world have countered their low status and power with activism that advances the cause of global feminism. The course takes a cross cultural perspective covering women from different ethnicities, religions, backgrounds, sexual preferences, races, etc. The course will discuss women’s activism as both local and national concepts and how that activism translates into an emerging global feminism that both unites women on like issues and separates them on individual cultural issues. For the most part, this course will have a twentieth and twenty-first century focus.
