WGS 4500 (Global Sth)

This course takes a multidisciplinary perspective to examine how power, violence and inequality work against women in the global South and what they are doing about it. We begin by defining violence, which includes not only physical abuse, but also psychological abuse, maldevelopment, marginalization, and lack of access to political, economic, and social resources. The course then focuses on conditions that fuel violence against women in the global South, including colonial rule, civil war, rape culture, and neoliberalism.
