Gender and Health


In this class, we will identify and study a broad range of health issues that are either unique to or of special importance to women, trans people, or people with uteruses. The interface of gender, race, and class and its impact on an individual's access to and experience in the health care system will be central concerns. Topics will include discussions of breast cancer, mental health, intimate partner violence, reproductive issues (from menstruation to childbirth to menopause), as well as the politics of health and gender, gender differences in health status, the effect of employment on health, and the history and impact of gendered health research. If you have taken L77 316 Contemporary Women's Health you may not register for this course. Waitlists controlled by Department; priority given to WGSS majors. Enrollment capped at 20.
