Upcoming event: Missing Women, 2019 Fisher Lecture

In developed countries, given similar conditions and care, women tend to live longer than men. By contrast, there is an extreme demographic deficit of women in many parts of the developing world. Estimates suggest that there are up to 200 million women who are “demographically” missing due to gender discrimination. This talk with Professor Siwan Anderson will explore: the age at which these women are “missing”, where in the developing world they are located, which disease environments are most relevant and cultural factors that might contribute to this alarming female deficit.

Date: Thursday 5 September, 2019

Time: 5:30pm – 6:30pm 

Venue: Napier Lecture Theatre G03, The University of Adelaide, North Terrace
