Women, Politics and Social Policy

This week-end course covers some of the landmark achievements in American social policy in which women have played a central role as leaders, thinkers, strategists, advocates, and administrators. From the Progressive era to the present, through the courts, Congress, and state legislatures, women have effectively organized and exerted political pressure as insiders and outsiders to win humane social policies beneficial to all families and indispensable to those facing dire circumstances. The course explores social policy as a compelling arena for women's political engagement and offers a range of readings and exercises to illuminate this vital topic. Meets with GOVT-685 001.
