The social construction of gender influence and structure women’s and men’s lives, it shapes their everyday experiences and the strategies they choose in their daily lives. Choices and constraints are mediated by gendered institutions, norms and policies. In this course, we will try to disentangle how these experiences and choices are shaped by different institutional settings and sites in which gender relations are being renegotiated—in families, workplaces, in organizations and professions, in local/ national and political venues.
