Gender in Public Policies – Pizza and Politics Night

An Evening on Politics – Gender in Public Policies

A comparison of approaches from Latin America and the U.S.

On Thursday October 24 Dr. Nora Nagels of the Université de Montréal and Professor Nicole Krassas of Eastern and students discussed different perspectives on social policies and gender. Part of the discussion addressed how public policies aimed at supporting vulnerable groups, such as Food Stamps in the U.S. and Cash Transfers in Latin America do not necessarily take into account a gender perspective in their design and implementation. This event was moderated by Professor Martin Mendoza-Botelho.

 

This event was co-Sponsored by the Department of Political Science, Geography and Philosophy, the Program of Latin American Studies and the Program on Gender Studies.
