Course Details


Course examines the myriad of root causes of gender-based violence, nationally and internationally. Topics include the gendered nature of violence in US social institutions such as education, the economy, and the health care system, and in Third World contexts including cultural traditions and war. This course also focuses on the social constructions of masculinity and how far from being solely a "women's issue," it will examine how violence that targets women and girls threatens the healthy development of all human beings.
