Women in Developing Nations

Drawing on insights from women's studies, development studies and demography as well as sociology, this course will examine the problems and prospects encountered by the women of industrializing nations in an increasingly interrelated world. Through readings and discussions, students will examine the changing realities of women's lives in nations undergoing the disruptions of industrialization, explore the meanings of solidarity and feminism as they are practiced in such nations, and learn the complex ways in which women's lives are shaped by both gender expectations and structural (economic) change.
