WGS 110 - Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies


In this course we will explore the ways in which ideas about femininity and masculinity have shaped women’s lives–locally and globally, in the present and historically–and how some women have challenged, even transformed, those meanings and the social relationships that flow from those two potent ideas. Among the topics that may be considered are: beauty, war, sports, politics, women’s movements, sexuality, race, work, violence, fashion, family, globalization, feminism, creativity, religion, media and girlhood.

Note: WGS 110 is open to all students in all majors. The content varies by semester, reflecting the instructor’s individual field of study and expertise. As an introductory course, preference is given to incoming first-year students and students entering their sophomore year. Juniors and seniors may register only by permission of the instructor.

Program of Liberal Studies (PLS) Designation: GP
