Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would 100% recommend this class to anyone that asks for an elective or cultural class requirement that they need to fill. The class dives into the struggles and expectations of what it is to be a woman, as well as what it looks like to revel within your womanhood. This class is highly engaging and is mostly discussion based, which makes the learning environment more personal and fun, as you're learning from and with your classmates rather than being lectured for an hour.
You learn about what it is to be a woman in the 21 century, as well as what expectations have been put out for women to adhere by for decades. What does it look like to be a feminist in a male dominated and patriarchal society? What does it look like to compare different types of feminism? These are questions that are answered in this class. The course also requires some books to read, but each one is interesting and opens your eyes to sheer womanhood, which goes along with the course perfectly. You'll soon be able to connect what you've been conditioned to think and believe, as well as current events in the world with the texts that you read in this class, which is really interesting and fun to do.

Advice for students:
Be ready to be uncomfortable. A lot of the material and discussions in this class are foreign to those that only participate and adhere to mainstream culture and society. The instructor pushes students to question the very thoughts that they have as well as why they get upset during topics - what influences have told you to not agree, and why? There are also conversations about race and sexism within the class which can be uncomfortable, but as long as you try to participate and are eager to learn and understand, the instructor will walk through deconstructing harmful and toxic beliefs and thoughts.
