Title: Violence Against Women and Girls in the US and Abroad: Connecting Gender Equality to Environmental Sustainability

Presenter: Cheryl Hanna, Professor of Law at the Vermont Law School.

Topic: During her Gund tea, Cheryl talks about violence against women in the context of both the United States and internationally and how human rights courts have been making the links to violence against women and gender equality. She discusses the direct and often unexplored implications for the environmental movement, including things like reproductive autonomy and population control, household energy security, and sustainable agriculture.

This event is part of the weekly Gund Tea Series, an opportunity for affiliates of the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics and the broader University community to engage in robust discussion about topical research, current events, and relevant theory.

The Gund Institute is a hub for transdisciplinary scholarship, based at the University of Vermont and comprising diverse faculty, students, and collaborators worldwide. Together we conduct research at the interface of ecological, social, and economic systems, develop creative, practical solutions to local and global environmental challenges, and provide future leaders with the tools and understanding necessary to navigate the transition to a sustainable society.
