  Unintended Consequences: Strategies to Limit Gender Based Violence in International Agricultural Development  
(Special Event)

The inclusion of women in international development projects is not a new concept. Unfortunately, programs intended to improve women's equity often overlook unintended gender-based violence. This presentation by Amanda Crump, director of the Western Integrated Pest Management Center, is based on her research that offers a new perspective on this problem by using a feminist lens to look at the potential consequences of agricultural development. The Virginia Tech community is vested in working in international agriculture. It is this community of students, faculty, staff, and community members who are the target of this visit. Ms. Crump would like to have a genuine dialogue that highlights gender-based violence that is often gone unnoticed.
This presentation is hosted by Women and Gender in International Development at the Office of International Research, Education, and Development (OIRED). Refreshments will be served. For those off campus who would like to join in, a WebEx link can be provided.
