History of American Women

History of American Women: 1869-1991
This course will examine women’s social, political, cultural, and economic position in American society from 1869 through the late twentieth century. We will explore the shifting ideological basis for gender roles, as well as the effects of race, class, ethnicity, and region on women’s lives. Topics covered will include: women’s political identify, women’s work, sexuality, access to education, the limits of “sisterhood” across racial and economic boundaries, and the opportunities women used to expand their sphere of influence.
