The Alice Paul Center for Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality at the University of Pennsylvania will host an international conference, Gender, War, and Militarism, October 25-26 at Penn.

“This event will be the first truly major conference to consider the crucial gender-related issues in contemporary conflicts including genocidal rape, women and child soldiers and women as peace activists and is, by far, the most international in scope to date,” said Dr. Shannon Lundeen, associate director of the Center.

Experts in international relations, law, Middle Eastern studies, peace studies, political science and women’s studies will address issues of war and gender in conflict zones around the world.

The conference opens to the public on October 25 from 9:45 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. in Bodek Lounge of Houston Hall. From 4 to 7:30 p.m., the conference will continue in Room 200, College Hall.
