Fall 2013 Scholar in Residence - Heidi Hartmann
The GPWSC is pleased to announce that our Fall 2013 Scholar in Residence will be Heidi Hartmann, an internationally renowned feminist economist. Dr. Hartmann is President of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, a scientific research organization that she founded in 1987 to meet the need for women-centered, policy-oriented research. She received her B.A. from Swarthmore College and M. Phil and Ph.D. degrees from Yale University, all in economics. She was the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship Award for her work in the field of women and economics.
In conjunction with Dr. Hartmann’s visit as Scholar in Residence, GPWSC is participating in an Advisory Group to the Status Report on Girls, Young Women and those who identify as Female in Philadelphia co-organized by the Girls Justice League and Women’s Way. The goal of the report is to know, document, and ultimately change the direction of girls, young women, and those who identify as female in Philadelphia.
