PSYC/WMST 354: Psychology of Women & Gender


This course explores the psychology of women and gender within three main units.   The first unit addresses feminism and examines research, gender, and biology through a feminist lens. The second unit focuses on women’s development from childhood through young adulthood with particular attention on socialization and interpersonal relationships. The final unit explores issues of power: in the workplace, interpersonally, and psychologically.  In the course, there is also an examination of how women’s lives can be bettered by transforming gender so that women can become empowered.
