WGSS 30.06 Women and Poverty in the United States

This course will encourage students to understand the connection between women and poverty in the United States:  (why) are women more likely to be poor than men?  The course will explain this connection between women and poverty by looking at gendered and raced wage gaps; women’s paid and unpaid work within capitalism; the cost of identifying women with caretaking work; stereotypes of poor women; American public policy targeted at (certain) women; and the intersection of (environmental) racism, sexism, and classism.

It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
