Estrich to discuss 'The State of Women in America,' March 27

commentator and author Susan Estrich will speak at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 27, in McCosh 10. Her address is titled "Sex and Power: The State of Women in America."

Estrich is the Robert Kingsley Professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California and the author of "Real Rape," "Getting Away With Murder: How Politics Is Destroying the Criminal Justice System" and "Sex and Power." In 1988 she became the first woman to head a national presidential campaign when she managed Michael Dukakis' bid for the White House.

Estrich is expected to discuss why, despite gains in income, education and power, women account for only 3 percent of the nation's top executives. She will present her view that until women reach the seats of power -- where the rules are made -- the deck will continue to be stacked against them.

Estrich's talk is designated as the Meredith Miller-Spencer Trask Lecture and is sponsored by the Program in the Study of Women and Gender , the Public Lectures Committee and the Women's Center .
