3 Units 3 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
A challenge to the popular conception that feminism equals male bashing. Explores various definitions of feminism, the different ways women and men have conceptualized what it means to be a feminist, and how the concept of gender is used to critique society. Focus is on the contributions of feminist thought to understanding relations of power and privilege; analyses of the origins and operation of gender inequality; the intersection of gender with other categories of power and hierarchy such as race, ethnicity, and class; and feminist contributions to social protests and movements for change. (formerly, WS 111H).
