Every year CWSE hosts a woman active in human rights and women's organizing in the majority world as a Distinguished Visitor, who teaches a class at OISE and gives a public lecture. This year we are pleased to welcome Shanthi Dairiam, visiting from Malaysia.  For the past 30 years, she has been engaged in the management of women’s rights programmes. She has much experience as a human rights activist; building capacity for the achievement of the human rights of women. She has been involved in the promotion of women’s rights through law and policy analysis and reform at the local, national and international levels.  Shanthi is the founder of International Women's Human Rights Action Watch-Asia Pacific and a former expert member of the UN CEDAW committee.

OISE staff and students are warmly welcomed to attend the lecture, which will include a question and answer period at the end. Professors who normally have class on Thursday evenings are particularly encouraged to bring their class to the lecture.  

As well, this lecture is free, accessible and open to all.

Following the lecture there will be a reception at the OISE library, 252 Bloor St. West.
