This subject was previously known as POL216 Sex and Gender Matters.
The subject explores theoretical approaches to sex, gender and sexuality - especially feminist approaches and those influenced by feminism and its transformative politics. Students are invited to critically examine: biological theories of sex, gender and sexuality; feminist contributions to social and political theory and social change; and how gender equality is best promoted in policy and practice. Students are encouraged to reflect on their own gendered positions, and to link the personal and familiar with the structural and political.
