This course examines women's health issues across the life span, from feminist and sociocultural perspectives. It explores the social construction of women's sexuality, reproductive options, health care alternatives, and risks for physical and mental illness. Through the use of a feminist perspective, specific strategies are employed to develop critical thinking and analysis for the evaluation of women's health issues through lecture, discussion, and written assignments.
Ideally we would like GSIs who can teach in both Fall 2017 and Winter 2018 terms. However, Winter term 2018 GSI offers will not be made until October 2017.
