Class Number 28336, 1 cr.  Class meets Wednesdays, 5:45 - 8:25 pm,
BH005, November 1, 8, 15, 29, December 6.  The process of
globalization is transforming the conditions of women's lives
internationally, affecting gender ideology and economic inequalities
in complex ways.  In this one credit class, we will explore women=s
work both in the formal and informal sectors, examining the content
and location of women=s work, wage inequalities, and occupational
segregation throughout the world.  Drawing upon multiple
international contexts, we will analyze how local culture and
politics situate women differently.  Finally, we will discuss
grassroots resistance strategies and collective organizing in
response to these forces.  Instructor:  Shanna Dietz, Political
Science, IUB.
