I was really looking forward to taking this class and I was not disappointed at all! I have all my classes in the music building on the West Bank so it is always nice to have a little change. I thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable environment that was immediately established because I always felt comfortable sharing my thoughts during class discussions. The blog was really because I have never used one before and it allowed all of us to reflect on certain topics discussing in class but outside of the classroom.
I felt that every lecture was well planned and each issue was very interesting. I have never taken a feminist class before and I learned so many things that I would not have learned otherwise. This class taught me to look at issues we encounter everyday (i.e. women portrayed in the media, rape, reproductive rights, etc.) with a critical eye. It was really interesting to look at video clips like the Hip-hop/rap documentary, Libby Lou, transgender, etc. I had learned a little bit about the transgender community before entering this class but we went into much more detail which I found very helpful! I really enjoyed this class and I think everyone should take a class like this because it covers many issues that are important to our everyday lives: feminism, gender, and sexuality.
