POL 150 First-Year Seminar: Half the Sky: Women, Girls, and World Politics (3 credits)

Although women and girls comprise roughly half the earth’s population, traditional analyses of world politics have ignored their roles in politics and the effects of international and national politics on females.  This course seeks to remedy this absence by focusing on pressing contemporary issues, including political empowerment and democratization, post-conflict peace building, economic opportunities (and their absence), and gender-based violence. Not for major credit.
