What We Treasure We Measure: a theatrical engagement with gender in/equality

Hosted by the Department of Gender Studies, the Department of Statistics, and the Atlantic Fellows programme at the International Inequalities Institute

Old Theatre, Old Building,

Chair

Dr Ania Plomien

PartecipArte engage with gender inequality in the European Union using 'Theatre of the Oppressed' theatrical forms to analyse, understand and tackle multiple dimensions of gender in/equality by exposing them on stage. PartecipArte present a 'theatrical PowerPoint' which shows, with human slides and living statues, the different ways to approach gender equality and the current situation of gender equality in European Union.

Inspired by the Gender Equality Index, the theatrical PowerPoint highlights how men and women are assigned different responsibilities, rights, benefits and opportunities in the activities they perform, in access to the control of resources and in decision-making processes. The slides explain the unfavourable situation of women in all of the six core domains composing the Gender Equality Index – work, money, knowledge, time, power and health - and in the satellite domain of violence against women. In turn, the audience becomes the protagonist and the author of a new PowerPoint, asking should we accept those stories or can we change them?

Ania Plomien is Assistant Professor in Gender and Social Science at the Gender Institute, LSE

LSE’s Department of Gender Studies (@LSEGenderTweet) is the largest gender studies centre in Europe. With a global perspective, LSE Gender’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 LSE Gender’s approach.

The International Inequalities Institute at LSE (@LSEInequalities) brings together experts from many LSE departments and centres to lead critical and cutting edge research to understand why inequalities are escalating in numerous arenas across the world, and to develop critical tools to address these challenges.

The Department of Statistics (@StatsDeptLSE) enjoys a vibrant research environment and offers a comprehensive programme of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Statistics.
