  • Lecture: "Making Spaces: Women's Work in the Developing World"
  • free
  • Synopsis from Oswego Events Calendar: "By Craig Warkentin of the political science faculty at SUNY Oswego. Despite impressive gains in recent years, workplace inequality remains the norm for many of the world's women. This is particularly true in developing countries, where traditional gender roles often limit women's opportunities to participate in public life. Examining child brides, clean cookstoves and self-employment, Dr. Warkentin will examine how women consigned to the home are challenging patriarchal controls and finding ways to empower themselves in an increasingly globalized economy."

Thu, October 4th, 6:00pm - 7:30pm in the Campus Center Auditorium (Room 132)

  • Lecture: "Iranian Women at Work: Stay-at-home Mothers with Ph.D.s?"

While Japan's laws are progressive, in some ways more so than in the U.S., each country has cultural, social and even linguistic barriers that reinforce power imbalances in the workplace and deter women from reporting sexual harassment."
