Women in Global Perspective

IWD Booth This course emphasizes diversity of women’s experience in non-western, non-industrialized societies.  Concentrates on women's participation in, interaction with, and resistance to patriarchal structures that inhibit economic, political and human rights for women. 

The interactive course is taught by KC Gott.  Every semester the students choose a project dealing with a current women's issue and address it head on.  In the fall semester, the projects support the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which is celebrated on November 25th ( click here for more information).  In the spring semester, the projects support the International Women's Day, which is on March 8th ( click here for the official website).  Click on the link above to view projects that are currently taking place and ones from the past.
