Cross-Cultural Gender Formation investigates and compares gender
construction within a sampling of cultures from around the world.
The course scrutinizes the significance of feminist claims about
women's oppression. It may focus on the study of such international
issues as the division of labor, gendered features of caste and
class systems, body rituals marking masculinity and femininity, and
resistance to gender formations beyond Euro-American borders.
