POST 102 PZ -Seminar on Women in Politics


Institution: Pitzer

Description: The course treats the role of gender in politics and policy-making in the United States. The class is divided into four sections. In the first section, we examine women’s movements and developments in women’s rights from legal, historical, and political perspectives. The second section explores women’s political behavior including attitudes, voting patterns, and campaign strategies. The third section addresses women as political office holders and includes discussions of how women approach representation and policy formation. In this section, we consider “women’s issues” and investigate how certain policies affect women. The final section consists of student presentations on their term paper research. Throughout the course, we will explore such themes as the relationship (or lack thereof) between substantive and descriptive representation, the intersections between gender politics and racial and ethnic politics, and the status of women under law (de jure) and in practice (de facto). This course is cross-listed with Gender and Feminist Studies.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
