WGST 366: Famous Feminists and Their Times: Global History of Feminism Report a Broken Link

Feminism is one of the great social movements of modern times. Using the personal writings of some of its most famous proponents, this course will trace the history of feminist thought from the late eighteenth century through to the early twentieth century. Taking to heart the 1970s feminist adage, “the personal is political,” we will learn about the history of feminism from the perspective of the women and men who, through their words and deeds, sought to challenge the prevailing socio-political, economic, and religious order that sanctioned female inequality in their lifetimes.
