I was inspired and humbled by the presenters and stories in this class! I will recommend it to others.

Only critique might be that the test questions were mostly on a literal level. Given the brilliance of the teacher, I would have expected that to have have deeper.

I never thought I would be so engaged in online learning. This course is wonderful for the busy modern day woman. The deadlines are flexible, there are lots of engagement opportunities and the material (some of which is a bit long) is very interesting and easy to grasp.

You will learn SO much in so little, it is honestly amazing how by watching a few lectures and reading a few (actually a lot) of pdfs and books you can achieve so much. Eternally grateful to coursera, professor Murray and the University of Stanford

This course helped me understand that my reality as woman can be different for other women so it is imperative not only to support other women to get an education, but to make others aware that more can be done for women's rights. Great Course!

Very nice course! Surely, you educate yourself in many issues really important for women and the ones who have a job associated with the lives of women! But be careful to keep up with the course every week so you don't miss the deadlines!

Thank you very much for all information, books, articles, it was very useful for my career. One moment is that some data was out of the date, so i couldn't reach them out. For example, some linkages were too old and they did not work.
