ABOUT THE EVENT
Drawing on economic, sociological, and feminist organizational theories, Rong Zhao (bio) of CUNY Hunter College’s School of Social Work will examine the overt and covert forms of gender discrimination existing in Chinese and Western societies. Her talk will analyze: 1) how women have been kept in the low-paying secondary professions and the lower level of organizations; 2) how the discrimination in the workplace is related to the state-led patriarchal society that purposefully restricts women in the domestic world; and 3) what kind of social policies need to be developed and implemented to address this pressing issue.
