The Women’s Institute at Russell Sage College will host “The State of Women,” a conference to discuss gender parity and women’s leadership in the United States and Europe, on April 21 and 22.

The conference is free and open to the public. Guests may attend conference sessions in person at Bush Memorial Center on Sage’s Troy campus or online.

Events begin on April 21 at 9:30 a.m. with a keynote lecture by Pippa Norris, a comparative political scientist from the Harvard Kennedy School and one of the most-cited political scientists in the world, according to Google Scholar. She is the founding director of the Electoral Integrity Project and the author of 50 books, including “Cultural Backlash: Trump, Brexit and the Rise of Authoritarian Populism.” Her research compares election and public opinion, political communications and gender politics around the world.

The conference will conclude on April 22 at noon with a keynote lecture by Marjorie Margolies of the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. She is the founding president of Women’s Campaign International, a group that provides advocacy training for women throughout the world. In 1992, Margolies was the first woman ever elected to Congress from Pennsylvania in her own right. She is also the first unmarried U.S. citizen to adopt a child internationally.

Additional panel discussions will be held throughout the conference.

“The State of Women” is presented by The Women’s Institute at Russell Sage College and The Institute for Women’s Policy Research in Washington, D.C., with support from the European Union’s ERASMUS+ program.
