    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was such a learning experience for me and everyone involved. Not only was the course full of interesting material but it really did test me and somewhat push my boundaries because sex and gender roles can be an uncomfortable topic to talk about sometimes because of the nature of the subject and the different opinions presented. Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone interested in learning more about how gender roles and sexuality transcended into the way it is today.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about women's roles and the history of women in the household to how we are today. One of the highlights of this course was definitely the TA who taught my discussion section because she always took it to another level of understanding. I had heard of the breadwinner ethic many times before but didn't come to learning what it meant up until I took this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely do the readings that are assigned for class and go to discussion. It's one of those things that you'll regret if you don't go to because then you're only grazing the surface instead of getting the deeper insight you need to be able to go on and do well on the papers and the exams.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Somehow this class made an interesting topic boring. Professor and TA's seem extremely unorganized and lectures never made a lot of sense. If you are not into writing, don't take this course because there are four major papers. The two tests (mid term and final) are strange and often times obtain material barely if at all discussed in class.

    Course highlights:

    Feminism and feminists movements Gay Pride and LGBTQ movements Hippies/70's culture Film/hollywood industry

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a ridiculous amount of reading. Don't try to read it all you may drive yourself insane. Try to skim/get main ideas and you should be fine. Like I said, don't take this class if you're not into writing. There also aren't any study guides, so remember that while you are taking notes during lectures.
