Instructor: Amy Glaser. This course meets Monday – Friday from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

This course will examine gender from many different angles. Some questions we will consider are: What are biological sex and gender and how are they related? How do we distinguish between genders and how is this related to the oppression of women by men? How is sexism related to other forms of oppression, including homophobia and speciesism? In addition, we will learn to think philosophically about a few concrete ethical issues that centrally involve gender, including sex, marriage, and social pressures on our bodies.
