Intro to Women's Resistance

Introduction to Women’s Resistance
Students will explore core themes and tensions in women’s resistance. How do we define women, and how do women define themselves? How do we conceive of resistance? What do women seek to change through their activism? How do they organize collectively? What has influenced their successes, and their failures? We will focus on women’s resistance in the United States, but we will examine forms of struggle that are linked globally. Topics include abolition, women’s suffrage, women’s liberation, civil rights, environmental movements, reproductive justice, environmental justice, Black Lives Matter, first food justice, #metoo, transgender rights, and human rights. 3 hrs. lect./disc.
