Activist takes feminist view of human rights, April 20
Posted April 14, 2004; 10:44 p.m.
Charlotte Bunch, founder and executive director of the Center for Women's Global Leadership, will speak at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 20, in 16 Robertson Hall. Her address is titled "A Feminist Lens on Human Rights and Security."
Bunch has been an activist, author and organizer in women's and human rights movements for more than three decades. She previously was a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies and a founder of D.C. Women's Liberation and of Quest: A Feminist Quarterly.
A Distinguished Professor in the women's and gender studies department at Rutgers University, Bunch focuses on the application of feminist theory to public policy questions, particularly at the global level. Her current investigations center on developing an analysis and understanding of human rights that incorporates women's lives more fully and utilizes the question of violence against women as a way of exploring the parameters of these issues both theoretically and practically.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Gender and Development Policy Network .
