lecture on "The Role of Women in Economic and Political Development: Lessons From the Middle East and Southwest Asia" is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 4. Princeton alumna Isobel Coleman, a senior fellow on U.S. foreign policy and the director of the project on Women and foreign policy at the Council on Foreign Relations, will speak at 4:30 p.m. in 016 Robertson Hall.
Coleman, who earned her A.B. in public policy and East Asian studies from Princeton in 1987, directs a two-year project that examines U.S. policies toward women in traditional societies in the Middle East and Southwest Asia.

The network is a group of students, faculty and alumni who have taken an active interest in gender and development policy. The network is sponsoring the event with the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs .
