Spring 2021 • Reading Group
Exam Type: No Exam
In this reading group on Feminist Utopias, we explore literature, essays and history of women’s law reform movements through time. What difference will feminist governance make in society? Is it most effective to reform the current system or to imagine—and then build—an alternative one? Students will have the opportunity to develop their own concepts for utopian ideals in a sex-equal society.
