The University of Toledo Law Review will present its annual symposium Friday, Oct. 13. The free, public event is titled “Gender Equality: Progress & Possibilities” and will begin at 8 a.m. in the Law Center McQuade Law Auditorium.
Discussions of gender in American society have been ongoing since the suffrage movement began in the 19th century and, today, “feminism” can be a controversial term.
The University of Toledo Law Review’s 2017 Symposium will explore the ways in which gender equality has been achieved or remains aspirational in nature. Four panels of experts will discuss gender as applied to various areas of life and law. Panels will discuss: sex inequality in the workplace; gender equality in education; gendered violence; and reimagining family law.
Lisa Pruitt, the Martin Luther King Jr. Professor of Law at the University of California at Davis, will present the keynote address, “The Women Feminism Forgot: Rural and Working-Class White Women in the Age of Trump” at 11:30 a.m.
Panelists will publish a collection of essays in volume 49, issue 3, of The University of Toledo Law Review.
This symposium has been approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio Commission on Continuing Legal Education for 5.5 total Continuing Legal Education hours instruction. The event is free and open to the public unless the attendee intends to seek Continuing Legal Education credit or would like a box lunch.
