About Gender Health and Rights Semiar Series

This seminar series is based on and will accompany the Stanford MOOC International Women's Health and Human Rights. The series has an interdisciplinary focus and aims to give you an introduction to how gender, rights and health are connected and affect one another.

It provides an overview of particularly women's health and human rights, beginning in infancy and childhood, then moving through adolescence, reproductive years and aging. We considers economic, social, political and human rights factors, and the challenges women face in maintaining health and managing their lives in the face of societal pressures and obstacles.
