Any 18 credits completed.


WOMN 2157


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




This course will examine a range of contemporary issues and debates concerning sexual politics and social justice. We will study the history of women's engagement with the law and the development of feminist approaches to achieving equality and social justice, particularly as they relate to topics that have been central to the women's movement. We will study the work of government and non-government organization to change existing laws and social policies to answer to the changing needs and concerns of Canadian society. With this approach, we will review the notions of justice that guide these initiatives, and evaluate both their success and failure in achieving social and legal reform. This course may be credited towards Sociology.
