Jan. 31, 2003 (Lexington, Ky.) -- Ann Cudd, philosophy professor and director of the Women’s Studies Program at the University of Kansas, will discuss the topic “Is Globalization Bad for Women?” at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, in 206 UK Student Center.

The public lecture is free and is sponsored by the UK Women’s Studies Program.

“I will argue that globalization presents opportunities to increase gender equality worldwide,” Cudd said. “The degree of the positive results of globalization on gender inequality will depend on the specific policies enacted by global financial, monetary and trade institutions, as well as national governments,” she added.
