POLI 2314 Gender and Politics (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

In this course we probe the role of women in American politics and the efforts that have been made on behalf of the collective political interests of women. We consider gender differences among citizens in public opinion, political participation, and vote choices and gender differences in the experiences and comportment of political leaders. Finally, we analyze the politics of a number of public policies having a special impact on women - among them, employment discrimination and other workplace issues, child care, equal opportunity in education, sexual harassment and sexual violence.
