Women's and Gender Studies Immersion

Deborah Blizzard, Immersion Adviser
(585) 475-2510, dlbgsh@rit.edu

This immersion provides an introduction to women’s and gender studies. It considers the concept of patriarchy, its dominance throughout time, and the multitude of efforts by women and men to conceptualize an alternative worldview. The immersion examines the key historical patriarchal and feminist texts, studies the rise of feminist thought, and explores the history of women’s activism and women’s rights over time.
