WGSS 410 - Global Women's Health

Description
Critical Perspectives in Global Women's Health - An overview of the theoretical foundations for framing global women's health issues. We examine the systemic and cultural barriers that prevent access to health care and well-being as well as how professionals, community justice workers, and women themselves advocate for more than mere access. We synthesize approaches in women's studies, global health, political science, environmental studies, sociology, anthropology, political economies, art, and history to think transnationally about global women's health. We pay particular attention to medical models, education, reproduction/sexual health, the environment, and sex work. Prerequisite: WGSS*100. Distribution Requirements: IP, PD.
