FS 351 - Women’s Experiences of Family Life

Credits: 3

Prerequisite: PSY 201  or WS 200 .

This course examines women’s diverse experiences in contemporary families and in the world as homemakers, wives/partners, mothers, care givers, and as paid and unpaid workers. Family studies scholarship is examined critically with respect to various themes, including the social construction of gender and validation of family diversity. The contradictory nature of the family as a source of/venue for control and oppression versus support, validation, and empowerment is also explored.
