This class blog is a place to explore our thinking about gender in 2014. What does it mean to be a woman in the world today? How about a man? How has society shaped who you are in terms of your gender role? How has our thinking, our actions, our understanding of gender changed (or not?) over the past few generations?
To think about: "Women's empowerment helps raise economic productivity and reduce infant mortality. It contributes to improved health and nutrition. It increases the chance of education for the next generation." (Kristoff and WuDunn, Half the Sky, xx)
