This course aims to build students' critical thinking skills related to readings and discussions centered on women's movements for social change.
In this course we focus on women as social actors and the challenges they have faced in the past and in the present. Based on feminist theory and eco-feminism, we will explore barriers women face, goals and strategies for social change, and the rewards and challenges that result.
