Population Issues: Gender Stratification

Sociology 595

3 credit hours, offered biennially

This seminar examines major theoretical and research issues in gender stratification and inequality. The course draws largely on the sociological literature, although the reading list also includes selections from other social science disciplines such as history, economics, political science, and anthropology. The subject matter includes theories and concepts, data, and methods about: the feminization of poverty, the gender gap in wages, occupational segregation, the intersection between paid and unpaid labor, mother-only families, gender inequality in work inside the home and parenting, the position of women cross-culturally, and the implications of social policy for gender equality.
[The Sociology 595 number is listed for several courses, because it is used for a set of population courses that rotate in the schedule with different section numbers.]
