WGST-253-01 Women's International Human Rights
No faculty information available
Women's human rights issues have been conspicuously absent from post-World War II efforts to promote and protect human rights. This course looks to the critical work of activists and scholars from around the world to assess the human rights framework in terms of its successes and failures in advancing women's rights. We will examine country-specific cases of human rights abuses and activism in order to develop an understanding of the nature of sex-specific human rights abuses, including violence against women in conflict, trafficking of women and institutional discrimination and the different means used to combat them. Fall and Spring.
