In this course students explore how gender shapes peoples' lives and the world around them. Using a sociological perspective, students will examine gender as a social construction rather than a simple biological difference. Topics may include cultural ideas of gender, gender and the economy, politics, the media, families, and education. This course is designed for students who want to learn more about the social connections of gender, and how the importance of gender differences are reinforced in society today.
