WGS 206 Women and the Economy(CO)(P&D)

This course will examine a wide range of economic issues faced by women, and how these issues have changed over time.  Topics include the impact of family structure on the economic well-being of women and children, fertility, the division of labor between home and market, the gender wage gap, occupational segregation, human capital and discrimination, and female poverty.  This course assumes no prior background in economics, so some class time will be devoted to teaching basic economic concepts as needed.
