Jo will join other panellists from across the social sciences and humanities to discuss a wide range of issues surrounding women’s rights, including women’s participation in politics; violence directed at women; unpaid care workloads; and access to equal educations across all geographies, classes, races and ethnicities; and cis and transgender rights.
The webinar is free, and there will be the opportunity to ask questions. Register online to join the discussion. The webinar will start at 19.00 (GMT) on Thursday 10 March.
