Courses / Cultural Studies / WOMEN’S VOICES
As the Women’s Movement that exploded in the 1960s opened up opportunities for girls and women, it also provided opportunities for women’s voices to be heard. We can see this in many forms — from music and books to art, from corporate board rooms to legislatures and executive offices. We’ll listen to these voices and look at the impact they have had on our lives. We’ll explore how class, race, sex, gender, and ethnic diversity amplify, modulate, and transform these voices. Presentations will be 20 to 25 minutes and the remaining time will be open for class members to talk about their personal experiences.
