This course uses the lens of women's and gender history from the colonial period to the recent past to survey major themes in the development of American civilization. It focuses on variables such as race, class, sexual orientation and national origin, and how they impacted the way in which women understood their lives and had access to opportunity. It also covers individuals who stand out as heroines and "firsts," and explores how gender has shaped the experiences of all Americans.
