A cross-disciplinary course in Women' s Studies and Social Philosophy which examines the concepts and intersections of Gender, Race, and Sexuality. The course examines whether these identities exist as natural "facts" or are socially constructed, while also questioning how we are to understand individuals who do not fit - or refuse to fit - into these categories.

Basic concepts and perspectives in Women's Studies, placing women's experience at the center of interpretation. With focus on women's history and contemporary issues, the course examines women's lives with emphasis on how gender interacts with race, class, sexual orientation, and ethnicity. The central aim is to foster critical reading and thinking about women's lives: how the interlocking systems of oppression, colonialism, racism, sexism, and ethnocentrism shape women's lives; and how women have worked to resist these oppressions. This course satisfies a social science distribution requirement and the general education diversity requirement.
