An interdisciplinary approach to Latin American and Caribbean history, culture, and politics, through the lenses of feminist protest and activism. The class explores how activists fight for change, both online and in the streets and how feminists agendas changed over time. We consider ideas of space, sexuality, gender, and nation as they intersect with race and class, explore women's movements in the 20th century, and examine current feminist agendas and the gendered implications of the COVID-19 pandemic. Note: this class has a synchronous component.
