This programme introduces learners to important questions about the meanings of gender in society. We introduce key ideas, including how gender is socially constructed, how gender structures our ways of being and thinking, and how the personal is political. Participants will apply these insights to a variety of current social, political and economic problems.
Key themes we will explore and discuss together include:
- the difference between sex and gender
- gender inequality
- cultural assumptions
- media representations
- feminism in the 21st century
An Introduction to Gender Studies will improve your self-understanding, enhance your understanding of the world, and help with advancing gender equality.
