Pamela Conover, Burton Craige Distinguished Professor of Political Science

What is the role of government in private life? Why do the personal lives of individuals become the focus for political candidates and parties? Same-sex marriage, contraception, abortion, and gender equality issues continue to lead headlines in this election season. This talk will examine the heated cultural terrain of women’s rights, gender, and sexuality in the United States and discuss the causes, manifestations, and implications of placing them in the middle of electoral politics.

TIME: 5:30-7:00 p.m.
