Women have a long tradition of organizing to resist oppression, expand their rights as women and 'citizens', protect their families and communities, defend traditional values, and change their societies. They have organized in, through and around revolutionary, nationalist and transnational movements, trade unions, autonomous women's movements and mainstream political institutions; states, schools, workplaces, communities, and religious institutions; public and private spaces; and issues and identities. This course, then, documents and theorizes the practices of women's organizing in a multiplicity of locations and contexts, and analyzes and assesses strategies.
