HRI 530 - Patriarchy and Women's Rights

This course explores the creation of religious patriarchy  and how it has affected the lives of women for centuries. Focusing on Judaism and Christianity, we will study in what ways the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament support the concept of human rights, including significant but limited women's rights. We will then examine in what ways religious patriarchy in Judaism, Christianity, and other religious traditions has hindered women's rights and what efforts have been made to confront religious patriarchy and improve women's rights.
