Everyone should take up this course because this course has a structured curriculum for feminism. The idea of feminism is something we have learnt from media, one will come to know about the meaning.

It is a very useful course about feminism. Many courses about feminism should be delivered and other courses should be delivered about Human Rights .

This was a fabulous course. It taught an old dog (part of the second wave of feminsim) new tricks and inspired her GenX daughter. Let's do this!

The only negative point about this course is that it is too short. I would gladly keep attending Prof. Aptheker's classes for some other weeks!
