About the Course

This interdisciplinary course will explore women's lives, representations, and political movements from different world regions. We will examine the impact of Western colonization throughout the world, and women's feminist reclamations of culture and identities as resistance to colonial legacies. We will further examine contemporary issues, including sexual politics, reproductive health, global economies, wars and crises, and environmental sustainability. We will also develop a “decolonized” feminist worldview while engaging in creative projects to understand the intersecting effects of gender, race, class, nationality, and sexuality on women's lives.
