WGS 3470 Sociology of Women


This course examines the position of women in U.S. society from a sociological perspective. Following the ideas of C. Wright Mills, this class connects the “personal troubles” of individual women with the “social issues” pertaining to women as a minority/subordinate group in the United States. In doing so, it provides a sociological analysis of women in the major institutions in U.S. society. Throughout the semester, the course highlights the intersection of race, class, and gender and the unique manner in which sociologists research these interconnections and women in general. Prerequisite(s): SOC 1010
