Confronting Gender Inequality in Uncertain Times

Hosted by the Gender Institute and LSE Law

Old Theatre, Old Building,


Dr Hannah Hamad

Maria Miller

Professor Diane Perrons

Justine Thornton


Professor Tony Travers

Since the publication of the LSE Gender Institute’s Commission on Gender, Inequality and Power in the autumn of 2015, we have seen a range of policy initiatives in the economic, political, legal and media realms. This event reviews developments affecting gender inequality since the launch of the Gender, Inequality and Power Commission report.

Hannah Hamad (@hannahhamad) is Senior Lecturer in Media Studies, UEA.

Maria Miller (@Maria_MillerMP) is MP for Basingstoke, Chair of the Women and Equalities Select Committee and an alumna of the London School for Economics and Political Science.

Diane Perrons is Professor of Economic Geography and Gender Studies, LSE.

Justine Thornton (@JustineT) is a lawyer and QC.

Tony Travers is Director of LSE London, a research centre at the London School of Economics and a Visiting Professor in the LSE’s Government Department.

LSE’s Gender Institute (@LSEGenderTweet) is the largest gender studies centre in Europe. With a global perspective, the Gender Institute’s research and teaching intersects with other categories of analysis such as race, ethnicity, class and sexuality; because gender relations work in all spheres of life, interdisciplinarity is key to our approach.   

LSE Law (@lselaw) is an integral part of the School's mission, plays a major role in policy debates & in the education of lawyers and law teachers from around the world.
