WGST125 - Women and Work

Students study the interrelationship of the economic functions of women in the paid and unpaid labor markets, the kinds of jobs open to women, and the historic patterns of women's employment and related income levels. An understanding of women at work is applied in the broader political and social goals of women in a changing society. While the focus is on the situation of women in the United States, comparisons are made to women in other countries. Prerequisites: RDNG 116 if required by placement testing; prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 101 and MATH 090 if required by placement testing. 3 Cr. (3 Lec.) Occasionally.
