Prof in the News

January 15, 2009 - In the News

Today's Globe and Mail features an op-ed by Prof. Belinda Leach, Department of Sociology and Anthropology. In the article, Leach comments on the TV series The Week the Women Went, which focuses on what happens in a small town when the women leave for a short period. Leach shares her insight about life in rural towns and the role of rural women in Canada.

Leach holds a University Research Chair in Rural Gender Studies and is the program director for Rural Women Making Change, a community/university research alliance based in Guelph. The national project, supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, is a blend of advocacy, research and knowledge dissemination. It involves professors, leading feminist scholars, national unions, volunteers and advocates and community organizations.
