Feminism, Women and Gender Studies Course
Diploma in Gender Studies
Arm yourself with the facts and the arguments about feminism.
Some facts about women could make you rub your eyes in wonder. Facts like:
• 89% of the directors in the top 100 companies are men. Only 11% are women.
• Every 36 seconds a women is raped in South Africa
• Only 2 in 10 UK MPs are women
• In Egypt, 9 out of ten women have their clitoris cut off (to prevent them enjoying sex).
You don’t have to be a dungaree-wearing feminist to ask yourself how we got into this situation.
How did it happen? Are women lacking in ambition? Do some women invite rape or mutilation? Or are there other causes at work?
On the Diploma in Gender Studies course we look at a range of issues relating to gender, and invite you to make up your own mind.
- Should the burqa be banned?
- Is prostitution damaging to women?
- Why do women make up two-thirds of the low-paid?
- Should we protest about Playboy underwear and PornStar pencil cases for pre-adolescent girls?
- Why do the churches obsess about homosexual people?
- As boys fall behind in exam results, what does the future hold for men?
Unlike traditional courses, this Diploma in Gender Studies is very accessible. On the course you’ll find fascinating facts, challenging issues and knotty problems.
The course comes to your door. It includes entertaining videos, stimulating articles and alarming news items.
