Aren’t women protected under the constitution? Next year we celebrate the 200th anniversary of our state and the 100th anniversary for women acquiring the vote. This course will present an historical and sociological overview of the quest for gender equality. We will discuss other topics relating to gender equality including racism, sexism, feminism, and LBGTQ issues.
