This course focuses on the sociological impact and consequences of being female. It examines variations among women due to the influence of cross-cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic conditions. Through an interdisciplinary approach, students view women's changing roles and patterns of work and relationships. The societal image of women, as reflected through cultural forms of expression, is carefully examined.
