WGST 213 Gender, Politics and Public Policy




This course examines the role of gender in politics and public policy through critical, intersectional, feminist, anticolonial, and sociopolitical frameworks. Learners will examine the role that political institutions and public policies play in creating, challenging, and overcoming gender-based inequality. While Canadian political and policy-based discourses are the core focus, this course also engages with gender, politics, and public policy on a global scale.
