ECON 113

Globalization and Gender

Description: Lecture, three hours. Requisite: course 11. Examination of gender dimensions of economic development and globalization from perspective of feminist economics. This perspective implies foregrounding labor, broadly defined to include paid and unpaid work; examining gender differences in work; access to resources; and well-being outcomes; and how these are affected by macroeconomic policies and how gender inequalities are relevant for societal well-being. Since early 1980s economic globalization has been achieved on basis of common set of macroeconomic policies pursued in industrial and developing countries alike. These policies frame both gender-differentiated impacts of policy and initiatives that are implemented to reduce inequalities between men and women. Examination of impact of these policies on gender inequalities in developing countries. P/NP or letter grading.

Spring 2022 - After taking this class, I found it surprisingly necessary to create an account just to review the professor. To be honest, she is the absolutely worst professor I’ve ever met at UCLA, to an extent that I could never have imagined. Her class was just her reading off her terrible, non-logic slides, with terrible English. She read so fast that we could hardly follow or understand. As a result, she sometimes ended her lectures earlier than expected but was not willing to give the next topic because she "didn’t prepare it". When we tried to ask questions, she would rudely disrupt us and basically repeat what she had already said. When the class was too quiet, she complained to us about students who suggested the class be more interactive in previous course evaluations and questioned us "how could the class be interactive if you don’t ask anything?" She forgot to record lectures and instead emailed us that she "didn’t have pockets or belts to put the microphone’s base" so she would not record any more. When a student asked her if we had to rent a class content documentary, she sent out an email in which she compared the price of the documentary with the average price of LA’s cappuccino to prove that we should be able to cover the cost. Like many of the others who took this class, I did so because of the grade distribution. I did well in this class because, to be honest, this class was pure memorization. Despite that, she had two midterms, and the second was even cumulative. So do think about it if you find the grade distribution attractive but you are not good at memorizing or enduring her rudeness and shady emails.
