Pretty easy, overall.
As an introductory course, this class allows students to explore an available major program. It's easy to follow, and the assignments aren't difficult. The professor understands that several first year students will be in the class, so she is understanding and easy to work with.
We mainly learned about feminism. Don't let this determine whether or not you want to take the class. While it's primary focus is on the effects of feminism, it discuss the importance of other movements as well. The class uses feminism as a starting point, not an end point. By the end of the course, you should be able to understand the importance of equal rights movements and why/how they took action. An example, that isn't a feminist group, is the actions taken against the Indian Act in Canada.

Advice for students:
Take it! It was an excellent course, one of my favorite. There were several readings required for each class, however, the midterms didn't rely heavily on them. You will have to read at least six articles to complete the second assignment, and the final, but overall, this class isn't too demanding.
