Wesleyan Professor Gives Talk on “Women in Politics” at Essex Library, June 11

SarahWiliarty 1ESSEX – On Saturday, June 11, at 1 p.m. Wesleyan Government Professor Sarah Wiliarty will give a talk on women in politics, thus helping to put Hillary Clinton’s campaigns for the presidency into some perspective, both internationally and historically. Being related to a male political leader is actually an exceptionally common way for women to gain executive office in many other places. Wiliarty will also talk about what conditions tend to facilitate or hinder women gaining office more generally.

Sarah Wiliarty received her Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley and a B.A. in Physics from Harvard University. Her book, The CDU and the Politics of Gender in Germany: Bringing Women to the Party, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2010.

This program is free and open to all. Call the library to register in advance: (860) 767-1560. The library is located at 33 West Avenue in Essex.
