Women have fought for years to be heard! Our struggles and successes in life give us unique insights and
power. Through this course, you will learn how those very life experiences can help you understand the
power of feminism. This is a course in English-language feminist fiction from the nineteenth and/or
twentieth century. Students will study short stories that focus on women's lives and reflect on what it
means to be a woman and a feminist from various sexual, racial, class, and national perspectives.
