Description
FEMINIST SOCIAL WORK
This course focuses on gender and social work, beginning with a critical examination of the concept of feminist practice, with attention to oppression, power, and privilege in helping relationships and in women's lives more broadly. It explores meanings of gender as it intersects with race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, age, and ability in the lives of women in general and specifically as social workers and clients. Taught in a seminar format, this course examines topics such as work, welfare, family, violence, justice system involvement, health, mental health, and women as agents of change and is appropriate for students concentrating in micro or macro levels of practice.
