EGST 0355 - International Women's Grassroots Movements

Credits: 3

This course examines the complex dimensions of feminism in a variety of postcolonial contexts. Throughout a number of societies, women as colonized subjects have been labeled as "other." The historical contexts of colonialism create distinct interpretations of feminism in relation to mutually reinforcing forms of political, economic, and racial domination. The purpose of this course is to examine the multiple ways in which women have organized to improve their lives in a variety of geopolitical settings, primarily in the contemporary period.
