An analysis of the position of women in developing societies, using a sociological perspective, complemented by historical, economic, political, and cultural approaches, the course will explore how strategies for international development have shaped women's lives. We will examine the assumptions behind common development indicators believed to reflect women's realities. For example, do higher levels of national economic growth mean that the living conditions for most women and their families in developing countries automatically improve? Does participation in the work force give women greater autonomy in the family? Special attention will be given to the cultural basis of women's roles in Third World societies as well as among women of Third World populations in the United States.
