Course Description Prerequisites: the department's permission for non-HRSMA students. Email humanrightsed@columbia.edu. This course introduces students to a range of obstacles that have arisen - and continue to arise - in the struggle to make sure that women are treated as full and legitimate bearers of human rights as well as some of the significant critiques that have emerged from this struggle. The course provides a historical overview of conflicts over women's roles in family, the economy and the body politic and addresses gains women have made as well as challenges they face in relation to economic development, military conflict, domestic inequality, health, and religious and cultural beliefs. Materials provide a range of comparative views of advances and obstacles to women's rights in Latin America, Asia, Africa, Europe and the U.S. Students will also learn about significant instruments, strategies, and movements intended to remedy the inequalities that affect women.
