introductory one-credit course will focus on women in low-income
nations in the Southern hemisphere and will cover both household-
level and global dynamics: the ways in which gender relations within
households affect women's employment and working conditions and the
differential impact of globalization on women and men, in
agriculture, the informal sector, and the formal labor force. We will
also cover a few examples of women's organizing efforts in response
to gender oppression and other forces that impoverish them.
