Share with students an understanding of the varied feminist perspectives within and across disciplines and the role that feminist theory and practice play in broadening and restructuring disciplinary frameworks;

Help students recognize the cross-cultural/ global context of Women’s Studies and comprehend issues affecting women in different cultural, economic, religious, ethnic and class settings;

Develop in students an awareness of the connection between gender oppression and racism and other forms of oppression;

Help students develop the ability to outline potential strategies for the remedy of social injustice and design agendas for positive individual and collective action to support social change.
