Seattle University’s College of Nursing kicks off its inaugural Dean’s Lecture in Nursing Leadership with internationally recognized scholar Afaf Meleis. The presentation, “On Globalization and Urbanization and the Risks to Women and the Girl-child” will shed light on the risks to women and children in developing countries. Wars, natural disasters, new epidemics, re-emerging infections, democratization and globalization affect more profoundly the populations who are most vulnerable and put them at an even higher risk of vulnerability. Girls and women are among the highest demographic in the group because of poverty, gender divide, education, work and health systems and policies that are prejudicial, stereotypical and discriminatory. Models of care used for women’s health have tended to neglect the socio-cultural context and the structural constraints which profoundly influence women’s responses and experiences, as well as drive their health care needs and interventions. Dr. Meleis draws on her educational experiences and on many years of research about women, their roles and their health, in the United States of America, the Middle East, and Latin America -- as well as on her clinical experiences with patients and families who lived and responded to colonization, social injustices, gender inequities, classism, and disempowerment – She will discuss the global risks that women face which makes the world unsafe for them. And will also outline some global strategies used to make the world a safer place for women and girls. The healthcare and security crisis for women is not a "women's issue", it is a global issue that must be acknowledged and addressed in education, practice and research, worldwide. The event is free and open to the general public.
