    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It has taught me so much this semester about myself and also the world. It has given me so much perspective about issues outside of my own.

    Course highlights:

    The focus on intersectionality is one thing that really helped for me to gain some perspective. In order to have equal rights for one group, we must have equal rights for everyone. In the class we read a lot about the struggles for all of these different overlapping groups such as black women, transgendered people, and all other groups in general that don’t fit that white heteropatriarchal norm that dominates our society today. This helped to shed some light on other forms of oppression that I was not as aware of as I am now.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    do the readings and know your terms for all the topics so you can properly debate and discuss them in class and keep up with the lectures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Women's studies is such an interesting subject, and this course was a wonderful introduction. Not only do you learn about women's history in the US, Dr. Turkel also touches on gender roles and their importance in our culture. The class wraps up with a project on women in media (which my group did on Beyoncé). Would highly recommend!

    Course highlights:

    Not only do you learn about women's history in the US, Dr. Turkel also touches on gender roles and their importance in our culture. The class wraps up with a project on women in media (which my group did on Beyoncé, but other projects included Disney princesses and one project about Nurse Jackie).

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Absolutely do the readings. Show up and take notes; the professor speaks quickly so make sure you listen. The exams aren't hard and the very few papers you write are pretty easy as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was amazing. I was able to meet wonderful, intelligent women, who were full of passion. Professor Turkel was very nice and open to questions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the different waves of feminism, well-known feminists, different genders, how feminism and genders differ around the world, and how we can move forward in the future to continue our fight for equality.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give would be to read the textbook and take detailed notes in class. The exams are half text and half class notes. They are short, but very specific.
