FG234 – Sociology of Women from a Global Perspective
Economic agreements, existence of multinational corporations, information technology, and dissemination of popular culture all remind us that globalism is real, diminishing national boundaries and changing people's lives. This course will cover issues women encounter globally. Utilizing comparative historical perspective we will study the role of religion, nationalism, and secularism in shaping women's roles. We will also examine issues such as women's roles in political parties and governments, education, health and the effect of international agreements on women's status. (Not offered 2020-21).
