Course Aims

This course will bring students on a learning journey to discover sexual biases, discrimination and inequality in their own surroundings and elsewhere. It provides them training to unravel obtrusive and hidden gender biases and discrimination that limit life chances. Through an interactive classroom and a variety of active learning activities (including simulation, role play, critique journals and debates), this course will promote positive attitude to untie suffocating gender-blind and irresponsible behaviour that is pervasive in the society. It guides students to be self-reflective on gender relations and develop awareness and skills that bring more equality between women and men.
