Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Prior to this course, I had never taken a Woman's Studies. That's not to say I wasn't interested in the subject manner, I was, but I never had time for it in my schedule, until that is, my sophomore year. Race, Class, and Gender, inspired me to look outside my own paradigm of how I viewed the world. It opened my eyes, and caused me to question both my previous perspectives and ethical values. It is a course, I believe, everyone should take.
By reading various works of literature including renowned author, Toni Morrison, Race, Class, Gender, evoked typically tabooed conversation topics. Students discussed what white privilege meant, and the severity that it had on society as a whole. Additionally, gender was discussed, and the problems that can arise with the assumption of two binary categories for gender. The course took current news and interwove the modern stories into the lecture, making it both applicable and relatable.

Advice for students:
Be sure to do all of the readings, because that's how you'll continue to learn, and participate in the class conversations. The class conversations are heavily graded as is participation as a whole, so actually do the readings (not the Spark Notes version, Professor Roth can tell the difference!)
