Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It was interesting to be able to compare and contrast the ever-changing dynamics of gender norms and roles from country to country and region to region. It was a very interactive class as there was a lot of diversity and people could share often vastly different experiences regarding gender. On the other hand, it gave great cause for concern to see how patriarchy married to its numerous flaws and loopholes, had done more harm than good to the economic, mental, social and cultural life of women around the globe. However, it proved to be an awesome 10 weeks spent with the very knowledgeable and amiable Mrs Hampanda.
As one from a conservative background, I barely knew anything about reproductive health or health, in general. Also, I wasn't so informed about how society could make or mar the existence of people solely based on gender. The course made me much more understanding and appreciative of transgenders, women and others not of my gender.

Advice for students:
Be attentive in class as there are always very interesting and informative discussions going on and every class requires a 2-page summary of the class readings which are often lengthy. If you enjoy reading and writing like me, you'll love the class.
