GSWS122 - SOCIOLOGY OF GENDER

The assignment of gender roles and the creation of gender identities has profound consequences for women and men at every level of society: from their intimate relations, how they manage and participate in the institutions of society, their place in society's stratification systems. This course examines four aspects of gender relations: historical and cross-cultural examples of gender roles; gender relations in contemporary American institutions; theories of sex differences and gender inequality; and movements and policies for gender equality. Some specific topics to be covered are: Women and the economy, women and the professions, working class women, minority women, violence against women, changing male identities, the nature of male power, and women's liberation movement.
