Gendered Violence and Mobilized Populations: Citizens Taking to Gendered Streets


Denise Walsh (co-chair), Carol Mershon (co-chair), John Echeverri-Gent


My research focuses on the intersection of gender and social movements, specifically those surrounding issues of women’s physical security and Violence Against Women. I also conduct research on women politicians and their relation to questions of representation and leadership. I am currently conducting fieldwork in India and South Asia more generally, in relation to my dissertation.
