WOMEN IN POLITICS: Campaigns for the presidency in perspective

October 22, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Sarah Wiliarty

On Saturday, October 22nd at 1 p.m. Wesleyan Government Professor Sarah Wiliarty will give a talk on women in politics thus helping to put Hillary Clinton’s campaigns for the presidency into some perspective, both internationally and historically. Being related to a male political leader is actually an exceptionally common way for women to gain executive office in many other places. She will also talk about other scholarship on what conditions tend to facilitate or hinder women gaining office more generally.

Sarah Wiliarty is an Associate Professor of Government at Wesleyan University. She received her Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley and a B.A. in Physics from Harvard University. Her book, The CDU and the Politics of Gender in Germany: Bringing Women to the Party was published by Cambridge University Press in 2010.

This program is free and open to all. Please call the Library to register in advance: (860) 767-1560. The Library is located at 33 West Avenue in Essex.
