Course Description What constitutes equality between the sexes? By studying visions of equality between the sexes offered in law, politics, international development, religion, literature,  psychology, anthropology, and the writings of activists, we will explore what such equality must or might look like. Focusing on western authors, we will consider issues such as rights, equality and difference, reproductive roles, violence, and language.  Texts will include  Elizabeth Cady Stanton, A Woman’s Bible; the U.N.’s “Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women”; Marge Piercy, Woman on the Edge of Time; Catherine MacKinnon, Only Words; and Rebecca Walker, “Becoming the Third Wave.”
