4. Course Description:

This course will explore the history of women in the United States from pre-European contact to the present. Our topics will be as diverse as are women themselves. We will explore women's changing roles in politics, the law, the labor force, the family and popular culture. The goal of the course is to acquire not just a richer understanding of women's experiences, but also an enhanced understanding of gender and a radically revised historical perspective. Because women differ from each other nearly as much as they differ from men, we will focus throughout the course on the relationships between groups of women divided by class, by race, and by ethnicity.
