HIST 260 The History of Women in America

This course will explore the many ways that women participated in, and contributed to, the creation of our nation and its continued dynamism. How women managed to shape the nation's institutions, culture, government, society, and economy - although for centuries they lacked civil rights and freedoms - will be an important consideration in this class. The evolutions and revolutions in women's status and opportunities will be explored in relation to the economic, legal, political, and social factors that served as barriers or boosts in the quest for full civil rights and equal opportunity.
