This class is about the exploration of how gender is created, and the comparisons of the gender divide across cultures. Showing how modern society, in spite of its promise of equal opportunity for self-actualization of women, it alienates them from their humanity in a way that is unprecedented. Although in pre-modern societies we have blatant forms of women's oppression, in modern societies women do not suffer less, but only suffer a different form of oppression: alientaion from the "self", from their sense of humanity. The information is based on Marx's analysis and "Psychoanalytic Feminism" by Nancy Chodorow.
