A general survey on gender issues was given at the beginning of the semester and at the end of the semester. There were two questions for each gender issue: (1) how important is the issue and (2) how much work needs to be done on the issue. The issues focused on the feminist movement, reproductive rights, economic justice, gender and violence, men and masculinity, lgbtq rights, gender and language, gender and the media, gender and politics, social activism and social change. A 5 point Likert scale (not important to very important) was used. Some patterns included: an increase in students checking off "very important"in Week 16 in comparison to Week 2. A decrease in students checking off "not important" in Week 16 in comparision to Week 2. The majority of students chose either "important" or "very important" as their answers in Week 16, with "not important" receiving 0 responses for most questions in Week 16.
