    Across the globe people stand together in struggles to create a better world. Social justice movements refer to
    forms of collective action that seek to challenge oppression and transform society. The overall objective of
    this module is to provide students with a theoretically-informed understanding of these movements. The module
    uses a case study approach, applying various theoretical perspectives to illuminate attempts to achieve social
    change. Some of the social movements covered include anti-capitalist, feminist, civil rights, and disabled
    people's movements.
