Summer 2018 Course at the W&M Washington Center

For the first time, a distinct hybrid learning experience is coming to DC in summer 2018!

From Protest to Policy: Gender in Political Process

How does gender make a difference in politics? Does gender make a difference in legislating? What issues become political when women decide to act? This course will explore the role of gender difference in political action and outcome by examining social movements, interest groups, and the three branches of government. Students will be encouraged to explore their specific political interests through a gendered lens. By examining how political change and process is and is not influenced by gender, the course will add depth to our understanding of the explicit inclusion of gender in the public sphere. (3 credits)
