SOC494 Gender Inequality Today Syllabus

University of Toronto, Fall 2016

About This Course

Do girls and women in Canada and the U.S. have similar amounts of opportunity and degrees of choice, power and privilege as boys and men? In answering this question we need to consider diversity involving social class and race, as well as that involving sexual diversity. The course looks at research examining questions about the relative position of girls and women today, and does so while also considering class and racial/ethnic differences, and the LGBT community as well as cisgender folks.
