Gender and Everyday Life|

There will be a session on 'Gender and Everyday Life' during the conference, Inequality in the 21st Century: A Day Long Engagement with Thomas Piketty. Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century highlights the magnitude of contemporary inequality, how it has come about, why it matters, and what might be done about it. Introducing a feminist perspective enhances his analysis by not only pointing to the gendered composition of contemporary inequality but by introducing an inter-disciplinary perspective capable of examining the multiple ways in which inequalities are naturalised, legitimated and experienced in everyday life. Speakers include: Professor Stephanie Seguino, Dr Lisa McKenzie and Professor Naila Kabeer. The event will be ticketed, with further details to be announced in April.
