This course uses a feminist perspective to examine how societal notions of gender shape our built environment and colour our perceptions of the world around us. Gender differences are apparent in how we live, work, travel, and explore. Drawing on geographical topics ranging from our everyday home and work experiences to the trafficking of women across borders, this course explores gender roles and patterns from around the world and their spatial implications.
This course is equivalent to WMST 115. Duplicate credit will not be granted for this course and WMST 115.
Completion of WGST 100 or WGST 111 is recommended.
