Proposal: Women and Sustainability
Outcomes: To develop a new course on women and sustainability, incorporating literature, theories, and methodologies from a wide range of disciplines. Women’s work provides a model for the fundamental reordering of culture, economic and political priorities. Women are disproportionately affected by many of the issues that are at the center of the efforts to build a sustainable world, including poverty and access to safe and clean water. The course will include a global perspective, focusing on the different needs and problems of the developed and developing worlds, and the relation between the two.
