WOST-W 105 Introduction to Women’s Studies (3 cr.)   This introductory course examines both the relation of women’s studies to other disciplines and the multiple ways in which gender experience is understood and currently studied. Beginning with a focus on how inequalities between women and men, as well as among women, have been explained and critiqued, the course considers the impact of social structure and culture on gender. The intersections of gender, race, class, sexual orientation, and age are investigated in both national and international contexts. PUL=5
