Imagination, Normative Imaginaries and Agency: can 'human' rights accommodate women's rights

Thursday 22 May, 6.15pm
New Theatre, East Building

Professor Moira Gatens, University of Sydney, will be speaking on women's rights in a lecture entitled Imagination, Normative Imaginaries and Agency: can 'human' rights accommodate women's rights on Thursday 22 May at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Historically, human rights discourses have presented a moral vision of how things ought to be. In the west, 'the rights of man' has captured the collective imagination. If human rights are to come to accommodate women's rights, women's capacity for vision and imagination must also be recognised.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
