Join us at Tulane for a talk:

Dr. Farida Jalalzai is the Hannah Atkins Endowed Chair and Professor of Political Science. Her research analyzes the representation and behavior of women and minorities in politics and the role of gender in the political arena. Her work focuses on women national leaders. Her first book, Shattered, Cracked and Firmly Intact: Women and the Executive Glass Ceiling Worldwide (Oxford University Press 2013, updated paperback 2016), offers a comprehensive analysis of women, gender, and national leadership positions. Her second book, Women Presidents of Latin America: Beyond Family Ties? (Routledge 2016) examines several case studies of women presidents in Latin America.
Her latest book projects include a co-edited volume Measuring Women's Political Empowerment Worldwide with Amy C. Alexander and Catherine Bolzendahl (Palgrave 2018), and Senhora Presidenta: Women's Representation in Brazil during Dilma Rousseff's Presidency with Pedro dos Santos (under contract with Temple University Press).

Catherine Bolzendahl is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Irvine. Her work stands at the intersection of political sociology and the sociology of gender, framing gender as a fundamental basis of inequality and source of societal change. She is affiliated with the Center for the Study of Democracy, the Center for Demographic and Social Analysis, and the Center for Organizational Studies. She is also affiliated with the Master’s Program in Public Policy and the Department of Gender and Sexuality Studies.

Her ongoing work focuses on better understanding the institutionalization of gender within political organizations and legislative institutions, with a recent publication in Gender & Society and a chapter in a forthcoming edited volume with colleagues Amy Alexander and Farida Jalalzai. Their book Measuring Women’s Political Empowerment across the Globe (forthcoming with Palgrave) brings together a international group of scholars and is the first theoretical treatment of the diverse, multi-level, international issues at the center of measuring women’s political empowerment. Other ongoing projects include an examination of comparative support for same-sex parents with Simon Cheng and Brian Powell, and an examination of support for equal representation for women and Māori in New Zealand with Hilde Coffé. 

Amy Alexander is an Assistant Professor at the Quality of Government Institute in the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. For the next five years her research will focus heavily on the role gender equality plays in democracies’ achievements in various aspects of quality of government. Her publications include examinations of the consequences of descriptive representation and the distribution of political beliefs and values.

This original game of thrones features a heartless tyrant who will stop at nothing to secure England's crown.

William Shakespeare's stunning portrait of Machiavellian genius and the murderous quest for absolute power, comes alive on the Marquette Theatre stage directed by Dr. Laura Hope. In this original game of thrones we are engaged by a cunning, charismatic, and heartless tyrant who will stop at nothing to secure England's crown.

England's civil Wars of the Roses is replaced by a period of promised peace, but the scheming Richard, Duke of Gloucester, plans to take the throne following the death of his newly crowned brother, Edward IV, by seduction, betrayal, or any means necessary. Twisted inside and out by bitter discontent and determined to remove any impediment to the crown, Richard hurtles down a path of moral demise and military destruction, setting the stage for a new hero to rescue England and a new house to reign.

The movement continues. Our timely, exciting, and original production returns as the fight for gender equity gains strength. Join us as we reflect on the progress initiated by women who dared to persist, journeying through the three waves of feminism to bring monumental moments in 'herstory' to life. Watch the layers unfold as dancers portray the trials and triumphs generations of women have faced in an eclectic arrangement of storytelling. Meet the unyielding Suffragists who paved the way, our own Nola Sazerac Stormers, the role reversing Rosie the Riveters, 'bra burners’ who fought to pass landmark legislation, the evolved working woman, the objectified woman. HerStory highlights the rise of the modern movement for justice, where empowered women around the world have marched for humanity and change. Voices are raised, conversations are increasing, and actions are being taken to say Time's Up against sexual harassment and gender inequalities. Experience our unique production that is moving, celebratory, thought provoking, humorous, provocative, and certainly healing. Onward!

HerStory audiences rated their experience a 4.9 out of 5 and called the show “Amazing!”, a “Great and relevant performance”, and “Extremely inspiring and enlightening”!
