Gendered Vulnerabilities: How Water Shapes Education and Labor for Dalit Women in Kerala, India

Please join the Institute of Water Security and Science, WVU Media Innovation Center and the College of Education and Human Services for "Gendered Vulnerabilities: How Water Shapes Education and Labor for Dalit Women in Kerala, India," a seminar by WVU alum, Dr. Sera Mathew, that will be held Monday, February 20, at 4 p.m. in The Forum, located in the Reed College of Media Innovation Center.

This seminar focuses on how spatial marginality shapes Dalit women’s and girl’s education in Kerala, India. Using data from fieldwork conducted in Kerala, it discusses how a lack of water translates into an exacerbation of gendered labor and a subsequent lack of engagement with education for Dalit women and girls in Kerala.
