Feminist Jurisprudence provides an opportunity to study the different strands of feminist theory. The course examines the relationship of law to the experiences of women situated differently in the world; the meaning and experience of sex and gender as reflected in and influenced by law; cultural images of women and men that both shape and are shaped by the law; and institutional and social structures and practices that perpetuate inequality, exclusion, or subordination. The course also considers the interaction of feminist theories with other critical traditions, including Critical Race Theory, Social Theories of Power and Wealth, Cultural Studies, Human Rights, Disability Rights, and Clinical Theory. Students may take the course for two or three credits, depending upon the scope of the project/paper they undertake.
