Instructor: Shannon Boss


This course provides an introduction to feminist theory and movements. Throughout the course, we will question what feminism is, explore the nature of oppression, and examine issues of sex and gender. We will pay particular attention to racial, queer, and disabled insights into the pitfalls and potentials of feminist theory and movements. In the final portion of the course, we look briefly into the intersections of witchcraft and feminism. In doing so, we will explore the ways in which we can resist and rebel against oppressive conditions.
