Ralph Miliband Lectures on Inequalities: dimensions and challenges

Date: Thursday 3 February 2005
Time: 6:30pm
: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speakers:  Barbara Ehrenreich, Polly Toynbee
Chair: Dr Diane Perrons

This event brings together two of the best known writers on gender; they will explore the extent to which old patterns of gender inequality have been eroded and the extent to which these patterns are still reproduced today.  They will also debate how gender inequalities can be challenged and new political strategies 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.

This event is co-sponsored by LSE Gender Institute.
