SOCIOL 33, Sociology of Sex and Gender   3 units

Transfer: UC, CSU • IGETC AREA 4 (Social & Behavioral Sciences) • Prerequisite: None. • Skills Advisory: Eligibility for English 1.

This course addresses the distinction between biological sex and the social construction of gender. Issues of gender inequality in societal institutions and social structures will be the focus of critical analyses of the consequences of the sex/gender system in the United States. Understanding the impact of the matrix of domination (based on race, ethnicity, and class) on gender is a central issue. A global perspective, which examines and compares the place of gender in nations of the North with those of the South, is also emphasized.
