This course aims to provide a historical and analytical review of the changes that have taken place regarding gender roles and identity in Spanish society over the last four decades, roughly from the last years of the Francoist regime to the present. On the one hand, we will explore how these changes can be understood by the political development witnessed in the country, from a conservative dictatorship to a stable democracy, that is currently leading on legislation in the area of sexual discrimination. Moreover, the course will focus on (i) changes to women's roles, leaving the private to join the public sphere; (ii) changes to gender identity, on femininity and masculinity; (iii) the construction of alternative gender spaces (gay, lesbian and other cultures) and its impact on other core institutions within spanish society, such as the family, religion, etc.

This course was previously listed as Women's Roles in Present Day Spain.
