03: Gender dynamics in changing societies

-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
english language

We will examine how gender roles are created and change over time, and how they affect society, the workplace, and the conditions of women. Using examples from developed and developing countries, and with perspectives from political economy and social psychology, we will look at how gender stereotypes are determined, and analyse their social and economic impacts. We will consider various typologies of sexism and their relation to gender inequality in order to examine how women’s work is recognised, assessed and rewarded, as well as to understand violence against women. Finally, we will investigate the intersection of sexism with other forms of social discrimination.
