Economic Inequality and Gender Inequality
Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 17:00 to 19:00
This SOAS Department of Development Studies and Bloomsbury DTC for the Social Sciences seminar will discuss gender and economic inequality. All are welcome and there is no need to book - but arrive early to be sure of a seat. Seminars are followed by a formal reception event. We look forward to seeing you there.
