Single Motherhood - WGS 353


This course examines the cultural ideologies, institutions, and public policies that affect single women’s experience of motherhood, with particular attention to the challenges faced by teenage and low-income single mothers. This is a community-based learning and research seminar; outside of class time, students will interact regularly with local teen moms, families living in transitional housing shelters, and/or non-profit agencies that support these women and their children—then engage in collaborative research or activist projects designed to support these members of the Easton community.
