CJ 432/532/WS450/550: MISSING WOMEN AND HUMAN RIGHTS
Course Description and Objectives
Instructor: Dr. Cynthia L. Bejarano Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This course explores the disappearances and abductions of women by applying a human rights discourse to understanding women's rights as human rights. This course will discuss marginalized women living within ‘hidden', or disenfranchised, populations, and it will investigate the structural and institutional conditions that facilitate the most extreme forms of violence against women and girls. Human rights discourse is explained as a necessary tool to combat gender violence and other types of violence against women in communities globally and locally. Human rights discourse demands that governments, community and society, overall, address the most extreme forms of violence against women and girls, their overt negligence, and in some instances, their murder.
The objective of this course is to gain an understanding of how and why girls and women are abducted or disappeared, and how they are marginalized in society and trapped in hidden communities. Concepts of violence (human rights violations) as they relate to the lives of girls and women include: feminicide, trafficking, feminized poverty, economic survival through illicit economies, and other forms of injustices including structural violence. We will explore the international political, legal, institutional, economic and socio-cultural implications of this violence against women.
The student will be able to better understand the application of human rights discourse and laws to women's rights; and to critically evaluate social, cultural practices, and issues of victimization related to girls/women. This course will in the process enhance your critical listening, thinking, and writing skills.
