Special Topics in Gender and History:
HISTORY OF WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP
This course explores the diversity of approaches to women’s civic and democratic leadership as practiced by women over the twentieth-century in the United States. At the center of the course rests the question: why and how have women risen to become change makers and leaders?
In addressing that question, the class focuses on differences among leadership styles, arenas of leadership, diverse communities, and the skills needed whether pursuing social change or career advancement. While addressing the changes in women’s lives in the twentieth century, the course also introduces students to contemporary women leaders in their communities.
Students who complete this course will be able to:
• Demonstrate their knowledge of leadership models as related to women’s current and historic roles in U.S. history
• Acquire and apply leadership competencies on campus and in the community
• Demonstrate their knowledge of diversity, democratic citizenship, and civic engagement to address social challenges
• Identify, research, and interview women who are currently leading in the community.
• Practice public speaking and the presentation of one’s ideas in verbal form.
• Practice and improve writing skills in varied assignments including interview papers and papers grounded in theory and research.
• Determine a personal definition of leadership that incorporates frameworks, past experiences, personal narrative, and history.
