With an introduction about Fred Halliday by Tarak Barkawi, Professor of International Relations, LSE
Why do women still die when they don’t have to? The world has the tools, means, and a large amount of political will to stop this from happening. Yet for decades we see the repeat of similar patterns. Women doing more of the labour of healthcare. Women taking on greater economic, social, and political burdens as a consequence of major health emergencies. For every advancement in sexual and reproductive health, the threat of backlash. In this year’s Fred Halliday lecture, Sophie Harman will argue that there are three powerful forces in the contemporary world that threaten any progress in stopping women from dying when they don’t have to.
Harman will offer a frank reflection of the state of women, gender, and global health in contemporary international relations, and offer a way of confronting these three forces to reclaim the fight for equality in health.
