H80 The Emergence of Women's Rights in Modern India [Mil]

iconThis course explores the human rights of women in India and provides the tools for developing the critical gender analysis needed to observe, evaluate, and act. Based on the work of various Indian scholars, this course allows participants to explore the images of women in the media, the dignity of women, women’s bodies, violence, working conditions, women’s spirituality and more. Because these sessions were crafted by and for women in India, one has the benefit of becoming aware of the joys and pains of women living within this cultural setting. The issues, however, transcend the Indian culture and bring insight and healing to women everywhere in their own native cultures.
