A Few Big Assignments
Requires Lots of Research
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because you learn so much about this history of women, and the things that our ancestors did to get the rights for women. I knew that women had to fight hard to vote, but a lot of the things we went over were astonishing.
The highlights of this course, were finding out everything that my ancestors did to win the right for women. Whether it was to vote, to work, to go to war, to get an education, and even till this day with the right for equal pay. One of my favorite women that I learned about was Elizabeth Blackwell, she was the first American woman to be awarded a medical degree after being rejected by all the major medical schools in the United States. That is the persistence that I admire and that I hope to have.

Advice for students:
You will learn so much about women history, so if you are a male, which there was one or two in the class that eventually dropped out, you need to go in with an open mind. You must realize that with American history it wasn't easy for anyone that wasn't a white male. For a women taking the class you will find it empowering. You will learn that there are many different forms of feminism.
