HIST 220 - Rebel Girls: Women and Gender in the West and the World


Credits: Three (3)
 

This course prompts students to explore an intersectional range of women who profoundly transformed American and Western societies, from indigenous women’s lives to the Suffragettes to the Riot Grrls of Third Wave Feminism. The class takes a comparative approach, pairing American women and gender histories with the lives, achievements and struggles of women more globally. By the end of the course, students will have a firm grasp on the evolution of women’s history as a historical field and will have explored complex and dynamic notions of sex, gender, and race within that field.
