Women in the Global City

Women in the Global City

6-8pm Tuesday, March 4th
The Rudy Lozano Public Library
1805 S. Loomis St., Chicago

In an effort to remake Chicago into a "global city" – one attractive to businesses and tourists worldwide – Chicago's educational, environmental, employment and housing policies have been rewritten over the last two decades. These changes in policy and funding priorities have effected Chicago residents differently by class, race and, as we focus on here, by gender.
