Unit 6: Unit 6: Gender Movements – Discussion
Discussion Topic: The women’s movement of the 1960s was part of a long effort by women fighting for equality since the late 1700s and continuing through today. The women’s movement is now more correctly envisioned as a “gender movemen.t” Describe what a “gender movement” is and explain how that differs from a “women’s movemen.t. If you were put in charge of the gender movement today, what would be the top three issues you would focus on and why. Do not forget to reference the ideas in your response to the course materials or other resources that you consulted to answer this question.
Be sure to answer all of the questions in the thread in an in-depth, well-thought-out manner (150–200 words). Make at least one reference to the course material. Engage in ongoing, productive conversation with a minimum of two of your classmates throughout the unit. Remember that you will learn more by sharing ideas. Your grade will be based on how well your posts further the discussions by stimulating thought and understanding in others.
