Journalists Barbara Ehrenreich and Polly Toynbee to give LSE lecture on gender inequality

Barbara Ehrenreich and Polly Toynbee, two of the best known writers on gender, will explore issues relating to gender inequality in an event at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Thursday 3 February.

They will ask to what extent have old patterns of gender inequality been eroded? And to what extent are these patterns still reproduced today? How can gender inequalities be challenged and what new political strategies might be developed in relation to them?

Polly Toynbee is a political and social commentator for The Guardian. Barbara Ehrenreich is a social critic and a regular columnist for The Progressive.

Dr Diane Perrons, LSE, will chair this event.

Gender Inequality: old patterns, new challenges is on Thursday 3 February at 6pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all but a ticket is required.
