Cover up: French gender equality and the Islamic headscarf

Gender Institute public lecture

In her lecture Professor Scott takes a critical look at one aspect of the ban on Islamic headscarves enacted in 2005 in France. She will examine ‘a clash of gender systems’ as a way of trying to understand some of the force of the reaction to Islam there.

Joan W Scott is Harold Flinder Professor of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Politics and History (Princeton, NJ). She is author of Gender and the Politics of History and, most recently, The Politics of the Veil.
