We will examine the ways in which gender determines our place in society, our perceptions of others locally and globally, and our prospects for the future. We will critically explore how the interlocking experiences of gender, race, and class shape our world and how we can imagine a possible society beyond them.

Considers the ways in which gender structures social life on both the micro level of individual experience and the macro level of social structure. Addresses contradiction between legal equality between the sexes and persistent workplace discrimination and sexual violence; how normative ideals of femininity and masculinity affect our bodies, identities and intimate relationships; how these ideals are circulated through the media, reproduced in social institutions, and articulated in different national, cultural and religious contexts. Limited to three attempts.
