Tracking the Gendered Politics of a Global Pandemic

Dr. Cynthia Enloe
Research Professor, IDCE and Adjunct Professor of Political Science
Thursday, November 5
12:00 pm

It will be just three days after the US elections, so it will be tough to think globally. But this may be exactly when we need to use our feminist curiosities to track the links between local and global politics! The coronavirus has caused illness, deaths, and dislocations in virtually every country on this small blue planet. But the pandemic has played out differently in the lives of women and men in different countries. Health care inequities are gendered everywhere, but how exactly? In this session, we'll start asking: Why is domestic violence rising in this pandemic? How are job losses and stresses in a pandemic gendered? How does masculinization shape our presumptions about who we call an expert in a pandemic?
