WGS 285 - Women and Politics

This course examines the way those who identify or are identified as women have been excluded from the political arena all over the world, and the ways in which their increasing participation has changed the way politics is done. This course is organized into two sections. The first part examines the effect of gender on the political process, focusing on women’s political participation and representation. The second part of the course reviews some of the key policy concerns of women around the world, including economic opportunity, education, health, and physical autonomy.
