Women and Water Rights

In partnership with the Department of Arts we hosted Vandana Shiva, a world-renowned environmental thinker, activist, physicist, feminist, and the Director of The Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Natural Resource Policy in India. She is famous for her advocacy work, multiple books and inspirational oratory ability. Her presence attracted around 500 people to her lecture -- both traditional academics and individuals from a variety of different sectors.

Shiva discussed the state of water and pressure on women or people in poverty around the world. Shiva is both radical and firmly grounded in her science. Our own water scientist, Deborah Swackhamer, moderated the discussion. To watch the event, follow this link.
