This course examines contemporary political developments that have affected women around the world, including the “War on Terror,” armed conflicts, sex trafficking and tourism, migration, and democratization. In addition to investigating the gendered effects of policies, we analyze women as political actors in their own right. Their participation in both violent and non-violent struggles will be discussed. Revolutionaries, protesters, environmentalists, motherist movements, presidents, and members of parliament: these are but a few examples of the diverse expressions of women’s politics.
