Tales of the Unexpected: gender equality and social progress in Bangladesh [Audio] | Listen Notes


Speaker(s): Juli Huang, Professor David Lewis, Professor Amartya Sen | This panel will discuss why gender indicators for Bangladesh have shown a marked improvement despite various development indices not reflecting a similar upswing. Juli Huang (@Juli_Q_Huang) is a PhD candidate at LSE’s Department of Anthropology. David Lewis (@lewisd100) is Head of LSE’s Department of Social Policy. Amartya Sen is Thomas W Lamont University Professor and Professor of Economics and Philosophy at Harvard University. He is the recipient of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Economics and an LSE Honorary Fellow. Naila Kabeer (@N_Kabeer) is Professor of Gender and Development in LSE’s Gender Institute. The South Asia Centre works with individuals, organisations, think tanks, the media, governments and parastatal institutions to debate South Asia amidst its constituent countries and with the world at large through multi-faceted dialogue and debate, and position it as a dynamic global region influencing wider challenges and powers. LSE’s Gender Institute (@LSEGenderTweet) is the largest gender studies centre in Europe. With a global perspective, the Gender Institute’s research and teaching intersects with other categories of analysis such as race, ethnicity, class and sexuality; because gender relations work in all spheres of life, interdisciplinarity is key to our approach. Eva Colorni was an economist whose work and passion were concerned with analysing and redressing inequality. After her untimely death in 1985 Amartya Sen established the Trust to commemorate Eva’s life and work and to reflect and further her belief in the possibility of social justice.
