Overview

Women make up half of the world's population, yet only a few have been able to make decisions about its social, political, and economic future.

Understanding Gender Inequality is an online course from FutureLearn, carefully compiled by professors and academics at the University of Exeter, UK. The course aims to show you why the gender equality gap persists in a 21st-century world.

In this course, you will learn how social norms reinforce gender inequality, how four waves of feminist movements have historically challenged the patriarchy, and how to make our society more equal for future generations.

Favorite Quote

"Gender is an identity-based social or cultural construct that represents how someone is perceived or how they feel. It is also a way to categorize people in a systematic way, and project upon them certain expectations."

Lauren Castle, Research Assistant for Gender Equality, University of Exeter
