Higher Ed and Global Gender Equity
I thought some of you might be interested in the most recent issue of On Campus with Women published by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) that focuses Higher Education and Global Gender Equity. Articles include: "Nelly Stromquist of the University of Maryland ... (who describes) the factors that prevent women around the globe from participating in education and the benefits accrued when women are educated. Karen Torjesen of Claremont Graduate University reflects on her pathway to collaborative global work. Representatives from Michigan State University’s Center for Gender in Global Context share their academic approach to globalizing women’s studies. Faculty from Smith College describe a recent interdisciplinary project on global perspectives on women’s education. And Campus Women Lead member Lupe Gallegos-Diaz reflects on global interconnectedness in the context of Chicana, Latina, and indigenous women’s success in higher education."
