This course analyzes social inequality and offers critiques of dominant Western feminist thought as it relates to women of color. Students learn the diversity of experiences among women of color in a national or local context by reading interdisciplinary works ranging from autobiographies and activist discourse to academic treatises. Through an intersectional framework, special attention is given to the diversity of knowledge among Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American and other women of color. Students discuss how people who identify as women work to decolonize and democratize feminist practices. Topics covered include resistance and resilience; gender racism; sexual oppression; violence; stigmas and stereotypes; capitalism; reproductive rights; homophobia; and critiques of white feminism.General Education: Social Justice
