WGS 4050 - Senior Seminar in Women, Gender and Sexuality: Human Rights and Gender

This course begins by exploring the modern roots of the culture versus women’s rights debate, tracing its historical evolution through the international women’s movement. We then examine a number of culture-rights controversies in different societies, assess potential solutions to the debate, and conclude with a discussion of how the contemporary transnational women’s movement is grappling with the problem. Prerequisite: WGS 2100; WGS major or minor
