During Week 1, students complete a journal entry in which they discuss their thoughts on current gender inequalities and what they think the course will include. The majority of students do not have the details of contemporary gender issues. Most of them state that gender inequalities are part of the past and/or that there are a few gender inequalities due to progress. During Week 16, students complete a journal entry asking them what they will walk away, what surprised them in the course, and how will they promote social change. Most students are completely surprised on the reality of gender inequality, how they are in support of social justice issues and how they notice gender inequalities. Students explain that they never cared about gender issues, but now they do. They notice that they have started conversations with other people and have changed some of their own behaviors. 100% of the students give credible ways in which they can promote social change and support gender inequality. Social responsibility and social awareness are common themes throughout their writing. One example is gay rights in which they explain how they ignored it, but now are genuinely concerned.
