I actually had Esha for Women Studies 10. She is an amazing professor! Not only is she adorable, but she is also extremely concerned, helpful, and sweet. She really gets into discussion during lecture, which makes the class a thousand times more interesting. She encourages everyone to participate, and even memorizes the names of those who do! She is very passionate about the subject matter, which personally, i found extremely interesting. There's a lot of readings, but most of them are pretty short and the ones that are long are fast reads because they're interesting, and, for the most part, pretty contemporary. She is the nicest lady ever; extremely approachable and very kind. I would definitely, 100% recommend this class to anyone, including guys. It's not difficult at all. The midterm is a breeze if you go over the study guide. It's very straightforward, simple, and short. They also grade fairly. The final is take home, and is pretty much formatted the same way as the midterm, just longer. I loved my TA, Jennifer Musto. So if you have the chance of having her, definitely take her! She's passionate, intelligent, and also really sweet. Although she posts the power points online, and even sends most of them straight to your email, I attended almost every lecture simply because I enjoyed Esha's stories and found the class interesting. The discussions can be hilarious, as are some of the stories Esha tells. She also shows great artwork and movie clips. Overall, great professor, great TAs, and great class! Definitely take it!

Winter 2023 - 100% would recommend. Professor De is one of the best professors I've met so far. She is always open to feedback, constantly changing the structure of the class to make sure her students can perform their best, and has a pretty manageable workload. There are 4 papers (of which one was removed for us this quarter because she could see us, especially the freshmen, struggling in winter quarter). The first paper was an analysis of films/media and gender representations (masculinity, femininity, etc.). The second paper was an argumentative paper on culture and its influences on media. The third paper (an either or for us) was either a paper on Beyonce/JLo and the impact of race in media, or a re-revision of paper 1 or 2. You might have both of these in your quarter. Apart from this, there were a few readings (nothing heavy) and notes on them as part of homework for some classes. I think the focus on audiovisual sources is what made me enjoy the class a lot. I didn't ever feel bogged down or bored by the topics and I actually was able to learn a lot. The grading, personally, was a little tough so I wont say this is an easy A, but it is definitely achievable if you work hard. After paper 2, I was able to fully understand my weaknesses and am in a much better position with my writing in general now. Would 100% recommend if you're willing to put in the work and enjoy her topics (Marvel, bollywood, hollywood, pop artists and their music videos, k-pop, etc.)
