New Core: Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge III or 3 credits in Area of Knowledge V.

Revised Course Description: This paired learning community explores violence and issues of violence as they relate to women and women's bodies. The courses would define "violence" as it pertains to mental, emotional, and physical acts of violence towards women in the U.S. and abroad, focusing on such prevailing issues as domestic violence, rape, pornography, and global violence against women, as well as movements towards fighting the patriarchal hegemony that allows such atrocities. We will incorporate films and guest speakers, along with visits to institutions and / or attendance at lectures or events that empower and / or support women.
