WGSS 339. Feminist Social Movements. 3 Hours H.

What are the moral and social responsibilities of feminism, and how can we best practice these commitments? This course explores the social dynamics of feminist activist movements and equips students to engage in positive social change. It uses theories of identity, agency, intersectionality, oppression, and justice to understand how people's lived experiences are both shaped by social forces and reshaped through human action. By combining ethical questions of citizenship and social justice with critical analysis of activist strategies in real social movements, this course will directly engage pressing social issues in local, national, and international contexts.
