Women in the World: Time for a New Paradigm for Peace
September 24-25, 2019
Colony Ballroom, Stamp Student Union
We are about to enter the third decade of the twenty first century and women continue to face obstacles to their equal participation in all areas of daily life, political, social, and economic. These obstacles persist despite the growth in the education of girls, despite large scale social movements, and political waves. This conference seeks to widen and deepen our understanding of women in relation to the inequalities they face, based not only on gender, but on race, class, religion, and more. It also seeks to highlight the progress that women have made, and how this progress contributes to the creation of more peaceful and prosperous societies.
Scholars and practitioners from across the globe, offering a wide range of perspectives and experiences, will examine crucial questions, offer new ideas, and innovative solutions to increasing the role of women moving forward.
