    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I've never met a teacher that can be as loving and as real as Dr. Cueva. She showed the class to have compassion but also know when to fight for what we believe is right. She was unbiased and rewarded students that challenged her personal views. When she made introduced topics in class, students were told to question her reasoning and her sources. She is a woman of strong principle and fiery determination to teach her students to be strong and righteous. As part Native American, part Latina, she took the curriculum and applied it to current events which made the class such a constant part of my daily life. The advice and closeness that she and the rest of the class shared was intimate and honest. I would highly recommend this class to any type of student that has an open mind and wants to practice critical thinking.

    Course highlights:

    Every class session we had was a highlight. There was so much to be covered in such a short semester. The professor drove into multi-ethnic feminisms and was honest about the ways in which America and other nations are lacking and/or succeeding in progressing gender equality. Not only was gender inequality emphasized but racism, transphobia, homophobia and xenophobia were all topics of everyday discussion. I learned the intersectionalities of each of the different combinations of minority groups. I was taking an Asian American history class during that same semester and there were weeks in which both classes had a crossing over of historical context. To my surprise, women's studies is like any other history class that a student may take. It takes deconstruction, analysis and interpretation.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your discussion journals. Show up and listen (you don't even have to speak). Stay off your phone (she will call you out). Your take home journals ARE your study guides. And lastly TAKE. HOME. FINAL.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course reaffirmed some of my beliefs about the struggles of women of color in both developing and first world nations. I would recommend it for anyone because there is so much to learn abut the world and social movements that have had the influence of great women throughout history.

    Course highlights:

    I was exposed to writings of women from all walks of life, and I was introduced to the idea of intersectionality. Which is term coined by Kimberle Williams Crenshaw that works to explain the different statuses that individuals hold in society based on their race, gender, sexuality, income, religion, etc.. The theory acknowledges the identity of individuals as multidimensional.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please do read all of the assigned readings and make sure to always communicate with the professor if you ever need to be absent or reschedule a test. She is an amazing professor that roots for the success of all of her students but you must communicate with her so she can understand you.
