International Visitor interacts on UNITWIN

On United Nations (UN) Day, October 24, 2007, Gita Sen called on BU's Women Studies Program colleagues. Discussions focused on Gita's commitment to systematically infusing gender processes into programs and policies at different levels, with Unifem (the UN Development Fund for Women) as a catalyst. She believes in building the evidence base "from below" then moving to the policy level.

Gita is currently a Professor at the Centre for Public Policy within the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore. Here she is pictured perusing UNITWIN's forthcoming volume of essays.
