HIST 7150 - The U.S. Women’s Rights Movement Since 1820


3 cr.
The class, run as a seminar with joint student/faculty leadership, traces the development of the women’s rights movement from its roots in the abolitionist movement to its present status in the feminist movement. Issues covered are abolitionism, woman suffrage, temperance, labor, peace, reproductive rights and general rights. Students investigate issues, ideologies, strategies, tactics and personalities. Research involves biographies, organizational histories and/or analysis of political theories and strategies. The course provides students with the knowledge to incorporate new teaching materials about women’s history into U.S. history courses and to gain a broader understanding of women as actors in U.S. politics.
