Upper Division Communication/Writing
Required core course for Gender Studies majors and minors. This course serves as an introduction to the history of social movements and the search for social justice in post-WW II United States. Focusing on feminism and the rights of women, we will also explore the civil rights movements of ethnic minorities and the gay/lesbian/transgendered communities. What has been the relationship between these movements, and what has shaped their relative successes and failures? This is a writing intensive course.
