Event details

A Law School lunchtime seminar by the Stefan Cross Centre for Women, Equality and the Law.

Abstract : From the perspective of the last few years of leading a women’s criminal justice charity (Women in Prison) and beginning her new role as CEO of the oracy education charity, Voice 21, Kate will share some reflections on leadership, campaigning for change, the power of academic research (especially feminist analysis) and how our use of relational language and theories can help create the world we want to see. Kate will touch on various feminist analysis with a particular focus on Carol Gilligan’s ‘In a Different Voice’. This will be an interactive session with some reflections from Kate and then a discussion about how ‘different voices’ and the ethical frameworks of care and justice can help make change happen across the ‘different worlds’ of academia, charities and the civil service.
