CULST 370.91C/GSS430.91C Vigilante Women (Online, 5 week course, June 15, 2020 to July 19, 2020)
This course examines vigilante women in life and fiction. Over the past ten years, in response to the global epidemic of violence against women, groups of vigilante women have emerged in India, Nigeria, and Mexico to fight back against corrupt institutions, systems, and leaders who do not protect women and girls against violence.  These groups claim an ethical legitimacy of their use of violence in response to ineffective and nonresponsive judiciaries. Furthermore, vigilante women in fiction provide a space where violent responses to violence against girls and women can be liberatory, freeing them from the shackles of violent men, or other patriarchal constraints. In particular, this course considers whether or not vigilante violence can be wielded toward feminist ends.  This is complicated terrain, because vigilantism utilizes threat, force, and violence, and historically many feminists have named those as weapons of the patriarchy.  But when women claim those acts as for agency and empowerment, and use them for the collective betterment of their communities, the feminist potential for vigilante women becomes a moral possibility worthy of deeper examination. Using memoir, journalism, photography, film, television, fiction, poetry, and young adult literature as our objects of analysis, students will leave this course understanding vigilantism, feminism, and what is at stake when vigilante women act on behalf of girls and women who are left vulnerable despite the systems and laws that have been designed to protect them.
