Annual dialogue focuses on globalization and women

Globalization and its effects on women worldwide will be examined at Sacramento State’s fourth annual Dialogue on Violence Against Women. The conference, titled “Globalization and Women: The Good, Bad and Evil,” will be held 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Sacramento State Alumni Center. The conference is open to the public, and registration costs are $30 for general admission and $15 for students.

The featured speaker is Sunjata Warrier, director of the New York City Program, New York State Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence. Warrier, who has worked with World Health Organization experts and the Ministry of Health in India on public policy on intervention with domestic abuse survivors, will be discussing globalization and how it affects women in India.

Other session topics include “The Chinese Strategies of Globalization in Developing Countries,” and “Trafficking in Women: A Perspective from Washington, D.C.” Lunch is included in the cost of registration, and entertainment will be provided by MANASA tribal fusion belly dance.

“We chose this particular topic because the link between globalization and violence against women is not usually recognized,” says Jessica Heskin, conference organizer and advocate at Sacramento State’s Women’s Resource Center. “People often speak of globalization and exploitation in general terms, but it affects women in very specific ways.”

Scholarships for the event are available to students. For more information and to register for the event, visit or contact the Women’s Resource Center at (916) 278-7388. For media assistance, contact the Sacramento State Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
