WGS.645 Gender, Health and Marginalization Through a Critical Feminist Lens (MIT) WGS.645 Gender, Health and Marginalization Through a Critical Feminist Lens (MIT)

Description

In the course we will use a feminist interdisciplinary lens and invite students to look critically at how practices like privatization, shrinking public "safety nets", de-regulation, and the commodification of health services intersect inevitably with gender, race and class, for both men and women. We will draw on a blend of empirical studies, policy materials, films and guest speakers to examine specific health issues like menstrual health, corporate obstetrics, abortion, obesity, intersex, harassment and other forms of gendered violence, mental health and stress, parent-child attachment, as well as ethics and pharmaceuticals.

Parents as partners Parents as partners

Description

In this free course we look at the notion of parents as partners. We identify a cluster of reasons why partnership is considered important - for children, parents and practitioners - and give examples of ways in which it can be interpreted in practice. We also outline a conceptual framework to accommodate the possible range of parental involvement and partnership practice. First published on Wed, 13 Jul 2011 as Parents as partners.

Parenting

Description

“I blame the parents!” How often is that phrase used to explain the ills of society and is it valid? This material will consider how important is quality parenting, who judges it, and is its provision the sole responsibility of parents – should parents just be left to get on with it? It explores what parenting actually means, what is meant by quality parenting and, how it can be enhanced and promoted. It is of interest to anyone who is, might become or works with parents.
