HST 118 - Introduction to History: American Women in the mid-Twentieth Century

1 course unit
Women were encouraged to give up jobs for a bread winner in the 1930s, seen as Rosie the Riveters during World War II, encouraged to become suburban housewives in the 1950s, participated in the sexual revolution in the 1960s, and became liberated in the 1970s.  This course focuses on the lived experiences of American women in the mid-twentieth century.  We will go beyond the cliches about women in those decades to see the depth and breadth of women’s experiences.  We will read memoirs, analyze films, and listen to women’s voices to understand the complex and diverse lives of American women.
Meets general academic requirement HU.
