Ending gender-based violence

MU’s Department of Women’s and Gender Studies will celebrate its 30th year of teaching, research and service about women and gender with a lecture by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheryl WuDunn. She will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 8, in Waters Auditorium. 

WuDunn, the co-author of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression in Opportunity for Women Worle-Wide, will present an agenda for ending gender-based violence and will ask the audience to accelerate change and show how a tiny gesture can inspire huge change. The lecture is free and open to the public. WuDunn’s book will be available for purchase following the lecture.
