Saturday, May 23, 2015
Pembroke Hall, 3rd Floor
172 Meeting Street, Providence

In 1974-75, when Louise Lamphere filed a class action lawsuit against Brown University for sexual discrimination, women comprised less than eight percent of Brown's faculty. This academic year, women make up thirty percent of Brown's faculty, and only twenty-seven percent of its tenured faculty. The ranks of women faculty in higher education have grown across the nation, but challenges remain, particularly for women of color. Join Louise Lamphere and Brown alumnae who are tenured faculty at other institutions for a discussion about how the roles of women faculty have changed, how gender inequality has nonetheless persisted, and what they see as the challenges and opportunities for women in the Academy today.
