WGS101H5 • Introduction to Women and Gender Studies

Description

This foundation course introduces the core ideas students will explore throughout their studies in Women and Gender Studies.

It provides an interdisciplinary overview of the historical 'waves' of women's movements for equality in a global context and background to the development of Women/Gender Studies as a site of learning and feminist inquiry.
