Overview

Critical analyses of issues and debates relating to gender difference, dominance and disadvantage.  Beginning with a historical theoretical overview, the seminar closely interrogates judicial and legislative interventions to combat gender discrimination in education, employment, and family. Drawing from various strands of feminists thought, the class will explore critiques of non-subordination, difference, autonomy and identity within the context of struggles against harassment, domestic violence, rape, prostitution, pornography, reproductive freedom, sexual orientation, poverty, essentialism, etc.
