In the course, students will investigate persuasion as a central tool of social change and unearth women’s long, active, and innovative methods of influencing public culture through persuasion. Starting in ancient Greece, the birthplace of democracy, and making our way across time and space to the U.S., students will study the major voices that have transformed our socio-political landscape. Further, we will travel outside of the Western world to explore how women in developing nations are questioning and changing the socio-political culture of their countries. As we move across time and space, we will investigate and challenge key sites of patriarchal influence and power: politics, education, religion, sports, war, and the media industries.
