HIS 209 History of American Women

Credits: (3)
The course examines the experiences of American women as a group and as members of differing social classes and racial and ethnic groups in work, politics, family life, sexuality, and social organization from the seventeenth century to the present. The course aims to understand women’s lives in the context of economic, political, and social changes in the U.S.; to discover the European, Latin American, and African roots of American women’s lives; and to reconstruct our interpretation of U.S. history in light of women’s experiences.
